One Snowy Night
Back to One Snowy Night
ONE SNOWY NIGHT. American, Quadrille. According to Kerry Blech, the tune was recorded in December, 1925, at the Victor field studio in St. Louis, from the playing of Judge Sturdy's Orchestra, and old-time band. Judge John O. Sturdy was born in 1858, lived in the Valley Park area, and fiddled and called figures. His small string-band included a bowed cello, but unfortunately, little else is known about them.
