Gulliver Lyr Req: Little Town in the Old County Down (14) RE: Lyr Req: Little Town in the old County Down 04 Feb 09


According to this site, http://nfo.net/cal/ts10.html#Sanders , Monte Carlo was his real name. He was the husband of Alma Sanders, who seems to have been prolific from about 1917 on.

Among other "Irish"-related songs they composed were:
"Dinny Danny; The Irish Yacki Hula"
"That Tumble-Down Shack in Athlone"
"Every Tear Is a Smile in an Irishman's Heart"
"By the waters of Killarney"
"Just a bit of Irish lace"
"Two Blue Eyes, One Little Green Isle"
"My Home in the County Mayo"
"The Hills of Connemara"
"The Old Wooden Bridge in Athlone"

Monte Carlo also wrote the complete musical score for the mo­tion picture, "Ireland Today".

He was born in Skamlingsbanke, Gravenstein, Den­mark, July 14, 1883 and came to the US in 1906. Biography here: http://www.traditionalmusic.co.uk/music-search/music-songs-composers%20-%200175.

"That Tumble-down Shack in Athlone" is on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P10l41kxdoc, along with comments from the grand-daughter of Alma Sanders and Monte Carlo.
