Written for August Fredland, on the occasion of his birth. Funny story—I was playing fiddle at the kitchen table and got the idea for a melody that I thought would make for a good song. So I put the fiddle down and rushed to write it down while it was still fresh, adding what seemed like the logical harmony parts as I went. I finished and hit the playback button and realized, to my chagrin, that I had recomposed the first four measures of ‘Millbrook’, Neely Bruce’s modern classic. I made some changes to not be quite such a plagiarist, but I am definitely in debt to Neely’s genius for the inspiration of this one. A major. 3/2.
