JACKSON'S MARCH [2]. American, March (6/8 time). A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BB'. The tune was in the repertoire of fiddler Emmett Lundy (1864-1953) of Galax, Grayson County, southwest Virginia.

Lundy, age 77 at the time, was accompanied by his sons Kelly on guitar and vocals and Geedy on banjo.
