New England Song Series No. 5:

SONG OF THE OLD FOLKS

An Early American "Auld Lang Syne"

 

Now you can read the fascinating story of how "Auld Lang Syne"
was adapated into

the earliest American arrangement and retitled:

"Song of the Old Folks"

This CD-ROM contains a biography of Father Robert Kemp and the origin of
his Old Folks Concerts which were held in the U.S. and also in England during the
last half of the 19th century. There is also a bonus audio album of music from the Old Folks Concert Tunes collections (1860/ 1874/1889).
