dulcimer Origins: Keep on the Sunny Side (18) RE: Keep On The Sunny Side 21 Jul 98


Copyrighted and published in 1899. Written by Ada Blenkhorn and Howard Entwisle. She got the idea from an invalid cousin who always wanted her to push his wheelchair to the sunny side of the street. The Carters were the first to record it, in 1928. They learned it from a seven-shaped note music. Source: C. Wolfe in notes to Anchored in Love (Rounder Records).
