Florida Folksong - Greek Folksong, Usually Sung After A Wedding (Part 2 Of 2)

Greek Americans vocals Ethnography Music Greek songs Marriage songs St. Augustine, Florida St. Johns County

Haiclice Tsangaris and Xeni Sarris will continue singing a Greek folksong that they usually sing after a wedding. This part of the song discusses ". . . the tree that we brought you, Bride, in your yard, water it every day so that it will enrich your windows . . .and you, Royal Child , came to your neighborhood. . . ." Greeks, along with Italians and Minorcans, first came to Florida in 1768, led by Dr. Andrew Turnbull. Turnbull settled New Smyrna Beach, Florida. When the colony came to an end in 1777, the settlers relocated to St. Augustine. The sound quality of this recording is extremely poor. It has been included online because the melody line can still be identified.
