From the recording Jefferson and Liberty
"Dark Girl Dressed in Blue"is an Irish air and is an obvious ancestor of the tune which follows it. The version of "Over the Waterfall" we play is more in 19th century or old-timey style. This tune became popular in old-time circles and was supposedly played frequently by musicians traveling with circuses and riverboat shows. "Flowers of Edinburgh" has been attributed to the Scottish flutist and composer James Oswald (1711-1769). It first appeared in America in collections of fife and dance tunes in the 1770s and 80s.
