Rosalie's Brain

Recommended Posts

Monday morning, so why not something silly?  Two unlikely schottisches -  Rosalie the Prairie Flower, written by George Frederick Root in 1855 -  and, to make it sound more trad, sometimes called the Northumbrian Schottische -  and If I Only Had a Brain, by Harold Arlen.  


Periodically, when playing for contra dances some trouble maker will ask for a schottische, and bands around here, not well versed in schottisches,  are apt to pull out the Wizard of Oz tune because they can't think of anything else.
