"With its origins in traditional music of Europe, old-time music represents perhaps the oldest form of North American traditional music other than Native American music. Reflecting the cultures that settled North America, the roots of old-time music are in the traditional musics of the British Isles (primarily English and Scottish) and Ireland. In some regions French and German sources are also prominent. While many dance tunes and ballads can be traced to European sources, many others are of purely North American origin." -- Wikipeida
