Keek-Es-Man-Dah is as a so-called Dutch rag an unusual contribution to the ragtime genre. It is a delightful medley of four folk tunes namely: Ach, wie ist's möglich, Lieber Augustin, Schnitzelbank and the amusing Der Hut hat'n Dahler kost.
The cover of the original sheet music shows a be-clogged Dutch girl and boy coyly kissing before an idyllic rural background, replete with canal, sailing vessels and the obligatory windmill. All quite in keeping with the composition's melodies. It is quite an easy fun-piece which even beginners will find not too demanding.
Keek-Es-Man-Dah was published by Ilsen & Co., Cincinnati, Ohio, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
There is also a treble solo version of this item.
