Re: Along Came A Fiddler

Along Came A Fiddler” is a much creepier story than “Private Detective Molly,” though both are by A.B. Goelman. A violin maker, who uses unusual materials, is commissioned by a woman who wants to find out who killed her sister. He’s heard this tune before it seems. In fact, so might you, as the story is a bit of a joke about how many versions there are of folk tales, in this case Child Ballad No. 10 “The Twa Sisters“.

How does anyone decide which version to sing?
