*Notes: Megan Lynch Chowning, the fiddler in the YouTube above, comments about this tune, “…a tune of dubious origins. This is the Westphalia Waltz…. Is it an old Polish folk tune? Did Texas fiddler Cotton Collins write it? Did he learn it in Germany and then call it his own!Did he in fact steal it from Vince Icadona of Dallas? And why is it considered a tune of the Ozarks? So much intrigue…”
