“I’ll Fly Away”

“My Carolina Sunshine Girl”

Many years ago, about a hundred in fact, just before The War left my nerves fried and my dreams of a career on the music circuit in tatters, in ohh about 1908, maybe earlier, I had the rare opportunity to perform some lovely songs with the famed trapeze acrobat GenevieveĀ Toruniaire (wife of Jaques Toruniaire) and sling them to wax recorder with Edison’s chemist, Jonas Aylsworth, himself at the helm.
