That's a funny piece. We are just wondering who is the composer... it appears to be a traditional composition, but we'd like to be sure... anybody know this information?

Thank you Amy.

Sincerely,

If it's what I'm thinking of, yes, I'm sure it's an American traditional.

Yeah, it's a traditional tune. Actually, if you just Google "Turkey in the Straw" you'll get a ton of hits. For example:

http://sniff.numachi.com/~rickheit/...ttTURKSTRW.html
http://www.contemplator.com/america/turkeyis.html
http://www.niehs.nih.gov/kids/lyrics/turkey.htm

Since this is a traditional tune, there are going to be a ton of different settings. There is even one in one of my violin books:

The ABCs of Violin for the Intermediate Book 2

No problem. Like I said, this is a traditional tune, so there are many different settings of it, so you should be able to find one that you prefer. I was surprised to see so many slight variations in just a short Google Search.

The ABCs of Violin (I think they do Viola and Cello, too) has a pretty good mix of "classical" music and simplifications of folk tunes (like Turkey in the Straw and Arkansas Traveler (which I learned as a child as "I'm bringing home a baby bumblebee...") along with some Irish/Scottish traditional tunes (jigs and the like). As an adult beginner, I find that I prefer these books over the Suzuki ones.

I actually bought a couple of compendiums of Scottish fiddle music published by Mel Bay, but they are pretty much all beyond me at this point (beside the fact that there are some special bowing techniques unique to Scottish music that you don't see in classical music (and I'm being taught by a classical teacher)). Oh well, maybe some day...
