MANASSAS. American, Reel, or fast Country Blues (cut time). C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. "Manassas" is from the repertoire of Darley Fulks (1895-1990) (Wolfe County, east-central Kentucky), and is either a blues-based reel, or a fast country blues piece, depending on your point of view. The title is a place-name in Virginia, the site of two battles during the Civil War.
