Guild music publisher of Topeka, Kansas, about 1896. The date of Worrall's manuscript copy of "Carmencita" [presented here] is unknown. In the early twentieth century, Worrall's popular guitar instrumentals played a key role in the development of the guitar styles of southern rural folk musicians and country and blues musical idioms. Worrall moved to Topeka, Kansas, in 1868 where he died in 1902.
