Videos from Clifftop

Friday, October 24, 2014 @9:43:10 AM


I've been (very gradually) adding videos from a really interesting session at this year's Clifftop (six so far). The session consisted of Rafe Stefanini along with Tashina Clarridge (of The BeeEaters) and Amy Anders (all on fiddle), Tristan Clarridge (Tashina's brother, 5-times world-fiddle champion at Weiser, and cello player in Crooked Still (and the BeeEaters), and Simon Chrisman (the 3rd Bee Eater) on bass (as well as me on banjo).  We were playing old-time tunes that were new to the others, but they picked up on them really quickly.  Jim Turner shot 15 videos from this session and was kind enough to send them to me on a DVD.
So far I've posted Rose in the Mountain (Salyer), John Sharp's Tune (Sharp), Lonesome Hill (Max Collins), Run Johnny Run, The Eighth of January, and New Five Cents.
