RISING SUN [4]. AKA and see "Sons of William (The)," "Come Dance and Sing," "Inkle and Yarico (1)," "Belle Catharine (1) (La)," "Muffin Man (The)," "Shrewsbury Quarry," "Sixteenth of October." American, Reel. USA, southwestern Pa. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Bayard (1981) thinks this a dance tune dating from some time in the 18th century, commonly appearing then with the title "La Belle Catherine" in earlier collections. Moffat & Kidson (Dances of the Olden Time, 1912) date it from 1780 and call it an "allemand." Some of the titles denote to Bayard its use as an Orange Irish (northern Protestant) tune.
