    I have been asked to locate some info, and if possible find a recording of the piece "Barn Dance and Cowboy Hymn" by Phillip Sparke. I've never heard of it never mind played if before, I'm hoping that someone can help? :confused:

    I had in mind that the music is about a double booking at the local barn; a revivalist meeting and a dance. Think there's a bit of a clash between the two groups of attendees but the cowboys eventually join in and sing the hymns and the congregation join in the dance.

    Perhaps Anglomusic might have some more info as he wrote it.;)

    Wow, thanks for that Philip. I told this story to a band that played it last year and they thought I'd made it up. I think I'll take a screen shot of your reply and pass it on.
