FRANK KEENEY [1]. AKA - "Keeny." AKA and see "Viva la Compagnie." American, March (6/8 time). USA, southwestern Pa. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Frank Keeney was a Washington County, Pa., fifer, but the tune is "Viva la Compagnie," which Bayard (1981) says was a once-popular college song. The second strain is also the second of "Landlord Fill the Flowing Bowl," which Bayard maintains is of "international currency."
