Lets me see calm, reflective water at midnight. There's a bit of tension or longing in the song that resolves with a calm ending.

From the fiddling of Kentuckian John Salyer, this is a three part tune with a modal feel, kind of like a mini-concerto. I'm playing on a Gold Tone cello banjo just recently strung with minstrel nylgut strings and tuned an octave below open A tuning.

A J.P. Fraley version of this delightful melody. He cited his source as Frank Clay. It sounds more like a hornpipe when I play it.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 10/7/16, the amazing duo of Spencer and Rains have released this tune on their DVD/CD "The Spotted Pony." Not much is known here about its author, a fiddler from Kansas named Bert Payne born in 1873. I was able to use Ken Torke's tab to learn the tune and added some cello banjo picked accompaniment. If you don't know what a snagboat is check out this TOTW for some info and pictures.

Kentucky banjo picker, Jim Reed, was posting for a while on BHO video after video, truly enchanting us with his soft, fluent, melodious 3-finger style. Molly Sue is one of his originals (which he could write instantaneously at will) which is also on his only CD. I learned it yesterday, thinking it has that descending scale (in the A part) I'm looking for and recently posted about on a Sound Off! thread called Kentucky modal tunes. I really think there's a parallel with some Native American music. Kentucky was full of Cherokee Indians at one time. Somehow their traditional music, especially as played on flute, has slipped into our modern mountains. Can it be?

When I heard BHO members bd and David Colgan play the minstrel version of Money Musk it sounded familiar, but I couldn't place it. It's actually an old Scottish dance tune, notated in a publication dated around 1800. Then I consulted James Buckley's minstrel notation of 1868. Next I discovered it's also a contemporary fiddle tune. With many versions to hear, I chose to play it minstrel-style, then old-time. There's lots more to know about this tune!

Another lively tune by the great Irish harpist of the early 1700's. His genius for composing baffles me.

It's thought that this old-time Tune of the Week comes from California Kathy Barwick's grandfather. She'a a local staple for good music here in California. The tune is simple but catchy. When played by Erynn Marshall and Carl Jones it's a real old-time treat.

A planxty written by Turlough O'Carolan for a wealthy patron's wife. It's a happy tune in 4/4 time with cello banjo accompaniment.

From the playing of Dwight Diller for the old-time Tune of the Week, 3/25/16. The tension of the tune from G to F chordal sounds reminds me of muddy roads, indeed. I don't like them at all, but I like the tune!

TOTW, 6/5/20, Mulberry Gap

Passed down through generations, northern Georgia banjo player Chesley Chancey (1913 - 1980) passed the tune Mulberry Gap from his grandfather on to Stephen Wade in 1979 while Art Rosenbaum recorded it at Chesley's home. He played it in the 2-finger style. I play it in the clawhammer style.

This is a tough challenge for the old-time Tune of the Week, 5/31/19. Our presenter, Andy Alexis, plays it like a champ and his old band, the Piney Creek Weasels made it a show stopper. I'm trying it once through, based on Andy's tab that really clarified what goes on musically here. I'd call it a quirky tune, but also fun to hear.

This old-time Tune of the Week for 8/11/17 reminds us in melody of some other traditional songs, such as Gotta Travel On and even Worried Man Blues. The Monroe Brothers recorded this as their first ever recording in 1936 and Bill said that it was commonly sung in Kentucky at the time.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, North Carolina fiddler Nancy Blevins supposedly wrote and fiddled this dance tune. It's described in a quote by Virginia fiddler Albert Hash, who was related to her and whose grandfather remembers dancing to it as a youngster after the Civil War.
