VIRGINIA QUICKSTEP . AKA and see "Bonnell's Quickstep," "Bonnell's March," "Dancing Mustang (The)," "Major Crichton's Delight," "Davy Davy Knick Knack/Davy Davy Knick-Knock," "Hoe Cake." American, March (4/4 time). USA, southwestern Pa. D Major (Bayard): G Major (Bayard). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. A march known in the British Isles and the Continent, according to Bayard (1981). Earlier antecedents are "Major Critchton's Delight" printed by Glasgow publisher James Aird in his Selections of Scotch, English, Irish and Foreign Airs, vol. 5 (1787). Bayard finds Roche's "Killarney's Lakes" to be a cognate tune. The Dutch authority Florimond van Duyse has called the tune a fife or flagolet air and has dated it to the latter 18th or beginning 19th century. See Bonnell's Quickstep for more.
