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 (cello banjo)

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.

This tune was composed for a funeral march after the Battle of Knockinoss in southern Ireland when the Irish and Scottish highlanders lost to the Parliamentary forces on Nov. 13, 1647. It honors the brave Scottish leader, Alisdair (Colkitto) MacAllistrum and his men.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 8/22/14. The lyrics are quite moving, telling of the real Jamie MacPherson of Scotland (1675 - 1700) who played a fiddle tune before being hung, who smashed his fiddle, and who would have been pardoned if someone hadn't moved the clock up by fifteen minutes. I like the part of the chorus which says, "He played a tune and danced it roon." Here's a link to the thread: http://www.banjohangout.org/topic/290158

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 4/13/18, Snake wrote this tune during a recording session and it was was recorded and kept for posterity with this title that was reminiscent of his experience as a child of being knocked down by an angry hornet.

This operatic song was learned before a trip to Italy when I didn't yet know I'd be staying in Lucca, the very town of Giacomo Puccini's birth. As it turned out, he also wrote Girl of the Golden West which was performed in San Francisco in 1907 and included the well-known mistrel Jake Wallace, who taught Lotta Crabtree how to play banjo. Small world.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 2/24/17, Erynn wrote this song after earning an Appalachian Fellowship Award and spending time in Kentucky to research the music. The tune was her thank you to the local folk with a little "wistfulness thrown in" for her departure. I'm playing on a Gold Tone cello banjo using 2-finger picking style. I'm playing AB rather than AAB. The tuning is comparable to double C, but tuned down and the key comes out in G, just like Erynn's recording on her CD "Meet Me in the Music."

For Don Borchelt's TOTW. It's a happy, meandering tune for having such a title, but I figure the sheep ranchers are dipping their sheep in sheep dip, thus the picture of working together and accomplishing the job.

Ever since hearing Dave Hum play this tune I've wanted to learn it. I happened upon it in a Ken Perlman clawhammer book and found I could play it.

Epic Kentucky bluegrass fiddler Kenny Baker played Make a Little Boat with his buddies after learning it from Howdy Forrester. I think of Mr. Baker as a swing-type of fiddler with Bill Monroe, but his family background was as an old-time fiddler. I can just see a little guy growing up in the country sailing his hand-made boat in a little creek....

Ed Haley's version. It inspired John Hartford, too, and he played it for the O Brother, Where Art Thou soundtrack. I heard it on an Ed Haley CD I was able to download and it became one of those "gotta learn" tunes.

Dedicated to my mother, now 93 years old. In my mind she's reached the summit, which was the original title of this piece. I'm playing on a Goldtone cello banjo.

After hearing Matt Malloy of the Chieftains, Dave Hum, and finally Don Huber, I got inspired to learn this tune and some of its variations, just in time for Saint Patrick's Day.

A planxty written to honor the head of an important Irish clan. The O'Connors were generous hosts of O'Carolan many a-time. A boyhood friend of O'Carolan's was also an O'Connor named Dennis. They would have known each other as neighbors before O'Carolan's blindness at age 18.
