This month's free tab is an arrangement of a traditional tune named "Camp Meeting on the 4th of July".  "Camp Meetings" were a type of outdoor revival  that were held on the American frontier during the 19th century by various Protestant denominations. Camp meetings filled an ecclesiastical and spiritual need in the unchurched settlements as the population moved west. Their origin is obscure, but historians have generally credited James McGready (c. 17601817), a Presbyterian, with inaugurating the first typical camp meetings in 17991801 in Logan county, Kentucky. Other ministers who associated with McGready subsequently spread his methods throughout the southwestern United States.

As the name implies, those who attended such meetings came prepared to camp out, gathering at the prearranged time and place from distances as great as 30 to 40 miles (50 to 65 km) away. Families pitched their tents around a forest clearing where log benches and a rude preaching platform constituted an outdoor church that remained in almost constant session for three or four days. As many as 10,000 to 20,000 people were reported at some meetings. People came partly out of curiosity, partly out of a desire for social contact and festivity, but primarily out of their yearning for religious worship. Activities included preaching, prayer meetings, hymn singing, weddings, and baptisms. The theology of the preachers varied, but a sudden conversion experience was usually emphasized.

"Camp Meeting on the 4th of July" was originally used as a processional march at the beginning of these revival meetings.   Its earliest documented use has been traced back to a series of camp meetings held in Alabama and Arkansas in the late 1800's.  As a fiddle tune, its source has been traced back to an old-time fiddler named Coleman Barwick.

Here is a link to a YouTube video of the tune taken from a recording by fiddler Jeff Trippe.

This is a 2-part arrangement (melody and bass), so find a playing partner and enjoy!

Happy 4th of July!
