I've just finished uploading this month's free tab arrangement on my website, Eagle Creek Music
. In honor of the New Year, this month's offering is a 2-part arrangement of the children's lullaby "Lavendar's Blue" (aka "Dilly Dilly"). The earliest known version of the song was printed in an English broadside in 1682. In the centuries since, it has evolved into a children's lullaby, and in 1805 was published in that form in a collection of children's songs called "Songs for the Nursery".
It enjoyed a resurgence in popularity when Burl Ives recorded a version of it for the Disney movie "So Dear To My Heart" in 1948. It was nominated for an Academy Award for best song that year, and became Ives' first hit song. Over the years it has been recorded by such disparate artists as Sammy Kaye, Dinah Shore, Vera Lynn, and Jack Pleis.
In 2015, Disney studios released a live-action version of the movie "Cinderella", and the song was featured prominently in that sound track.
Here is a link to a Youtube video of the song from the 2015 Disney film "Cinderella"
This is a 2-part arrangement (melody and bass), so find a playing partner and enjoy.
Wishing you all peace, joy, and MUSIC for the New Year!
In music and friendship,
"Plays Well With Others"
