For the old-time Tune of the Week, 7/3/15, here are three versions. The first is Big Liza Jane from the banjo playing of Kyle Creed. Next is a similar tune via West Virginian fiddler Franklin George and his banjo-playing partner, Katie Johnson. Then comes my arrangement of Going Down to Cairo (sometimes called Goodbye Liza Jane).

Someone played this tune a while back and I wondered about the lyrics. Today I received them in the form of a youtube video made in Canada to promote the composer who is revered there for writing some enduring folk songs. It's a cute animation and the beginning shows log rollers doing an amazing job of balancing on logs in a river. The song is about a girl choosing the log roller to dance with because he makes it so fun. I'm playing my little old banjo with no tone ring and some nylgut strings.

Learned from the fiddling of well-known Missourian Lonnie Robertson (1908 - 1981). I'm just becoming familiar with some of his work and am impressed by his smooth, clear, fast playing.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 5/4/19, Lonesome Road Blues is also known as Goin' Down the Road Feeling Bad. Check out the discussion thread for a very thorough coverage of this well-known song. I just sing a couple of verses here, out of many, many.

From Alabama fiddler James Bryan who learned it from Mack Blalock. Lookout Mountain is near James home and Lookout Blues is the title of his first solo album. It has a crooked A part with lots of syncopation. The B part remind me of Cajun music.

O'Carolan composed this in honor of the 4th Earl of Inchiquin, County Clare, Ireland. It sounds like a minuet until the second part, when O'Carolan's signature melody surprises are heard.

Kentucky fiddler John Salyer did the source recordings on both Lost Boy and Lost Girl. They're quite similar. The A parts differ, but the chordal flavor is the same and together they make a natural medley. Bruce Molsky recorded a CD with the title Lost Boy. Adam Hurt's Lost Girl on piano from his Insight CD inspired me to work on it.

This is a lyrical piece played by Stephen Wade using harmonics in f#DEAD tuning. It's been quite interesting to figure out how he did it.

From Adam Hurt's piano version, inspired by Kentucky fiddler John Salyer whose many tunes are always worth learning. I've also enjoyed playing my Gold Tone cello banjo with all nylon strings. Hope you enjoy, too.

This comes from Kentucky fiddler (originally from West Virginia) Ed Haley's historic recordings. As I recorded it I tried to imagine what it would be like for a real lost Indian and figured the title is also an allegory for any problem when you don't yet have the solution.

This version comes from Paul David Smith of Kentucky who learned it from his father. It's in the unusual tuning of fCGCD, though Paul played it in fDFAD. Mine's clawhammered, his was picked. I've wondered how many different Lost Indians there are. I know three distinct tunes called Lost Indian and have heard more than that.

When I heard this tune on the double CD set The Hammons Family it struck me as a unique fiddled version of Lost Indian. This is the fourth distinct tune I've learned with the same title and, really, I like them all. Mose Coffman was a good friend of the Hammons and was praised by Dwight Diller for his love of the music and his affinity for teaching.

From the always delightful playing of WV fiddler Melvin Wine, here's the TOTW for 12/27/19. The B part is crooked and leads back to the A part quite easily.

Many know of and play Ashokan Waltz. This other waltz by Jay Ungar has a similar feel -- a lovely tune written in modern times, but as old-timey as I like.

Today Dave's daughter, Perri, loaded an original tune Dave played while busking. We who looked forward to his videos here miss Dave and keep his music alive. I'm trying a clawhammer version of this tune and also enjoyed looking up the site called Lulworth Cove in Dorset. I figure Dave must have brought his family there.

Mabel Kelly is one of O'Carolan's "planxties" written in honor of a patron where he would stay as he traveled, earning his living in Ireland as a blind harpist in the late 1600's and early 1700's. Miss Kelly was most likely the daughter and heiress of a castle, but died five years before her father. The best source for learning about O'Carolan's life is a biography by Donal O'Sullivan. My Gold Tone cello banjo is equivalent to double C tuning but down four steps to double G.

I've been attempting to learn Mabel Kelly for a while and decided to enhance it with cello banjo accompaniment here. The chords give it a flavor that is just suggested in a clawhammer solo. The Garage Band recording quality isn't as good as I'd hoped, though I have a good Yeti microphone.
