NOW IS THE TIME. American, Reel (2/4 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCC. "Now is the Time", a reel, is attributed to Hirschel Fenton by George H. Coes. There is little information to be found on Fenton, although he may be the "H. Fenton" who was with Birch, Bowers & Fox's Minstrels in 1857 and 1858, chiefly based in St. Louis.
