MIDIs and More MIDIs
(The Music Part of "Quilts and Other Family Treasures")
If you've been here before, I've added a few new tunes. Enjoy!!!
Dear Hearts and Gentle People
Another "treasure" is the love of music- - my dad learned
to play the "fiddle" before the age of 7. At 7 he played well enough, and knew enough melodies to play for barn dances with his father. When I was a little girl, he would often take the violin from its case, after a long day's work, and play. He and his brothers had a 4 piece orchestra during the 1930's and the practice sessions were held in our living room. So I grew up surrounded by music. And now on the Internet I find hundreds of "midis"- - -I hope you enjoy
them, too. Here's a few - - - - -
