Annotation:All the Rage (2)

Find traditional instrumental music

Composed by Massachusetts contra dance musician Larry Unger, who (relates Susan Songer in The Portland Collection, after playing a dance in Madision, Wisconsin, with Seattle fiddler Ruthie Dornfeld, kept selecting tunes in E Major for dances (a rather unusual key for most dance music). Unger questioned her and was told that E Major jigs "were all the rage." Also appears in Songer (Portland Collection), 1997, pg. 19
