TOTW 10/23/2020 ~ Coyote Howl
An original tune for Tune of the Week, 10/23/20, by a musician to admire, fiddler Joe Herrmann. He says the title came from an incident of coyotes marauding his wife's sheep, killing four and injuring one. Employing a sheepdog in the pasture later solved the problem, but the coyotes still howled. However, they also stayed away. I'm in sawmill tuning, an appropriate choice for this title.

Nice one, Janet. Kind of lonesome-sounding,, like an evening coyote howl.

Thanks for leaving a nice comment Chuck, Rick and Denton. It was a thrill to personally hear via email from Joe Herrmann. He also was happy to know that a tune was featured in TOTW. He is a talented musician, like his more well-known brother John. For these people, old-time music is so central in their lives and it shows in the quality of their music.
