RED RIVER WALTZ [2]. American, Waltz (3/4 time). USA, Ala. C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. "Red River Waltz" was recorded in Chicago, Ill., in August, 1929, by the Stripling Brothers, Charles Nevins Stripling (1896-1966) and Ira Lee Stripling (1898-1967), a fiddle and guitar duo originally from Pickens County, west Alabama. The waltz was issued in Canada as "La Valse De La Riviere Rouge," but the groups name remained The Stripling Brothers on the label, and was not changed to a more local sounding name as happened with other American releases aimed at the Francophone population.
