Annie Laurie
#1
Anna “Annie” Laurie (1682-1764) has been immortalised in a song supposed to stem from a frustrated romance with Captain William Douglas. Although its original authorship is in question, it was developed by Lady John Scott, and the song became popular all over the word. Instumental versions are common: in Ireland it is played as a polka (The Scartaglen Polka), while in the United States as a waltz. My setting here is based on a version by Oregon fiddler Vivian Williams, who includes it as part of her “Songs from the Civil War” show. You can see her playing it in the video below. In the meantime, to download the mandolin music, click on this sheet:
