WES MUIR'S TUNE. ALA - "New House was Built (The)." American, Reel. USA, Missouri. C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BB'. The tune is from the repertoire of Missouri fiddler Nile Wilson (1912-2008), and named for a contemporary of his fiddle-playing father, William Randolph "Dolph" Wilson, who lived around New Boston, Linn County, Missouri.
