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....

An odd title for a 1920's Kentucky fiddle contest tune. No lions or tigers there, I'd think. The A part seems to have a big cat playing with his prey. The B part he's eating! Change tiger to kitty cat and man to mouse and I can handle the thought, barely.

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.

From the fiddling of Earl White and played on a Gold Tone cello banjo, this rag reminds me a bit of Ragtime Annie. It's alternate or original title is actually Pleasurehouse Rag.

Former Blue Grass Boy Tony Ellis asked that this old tune be shared and hopefully played once again. He learned it from an old friend who learned it as a 9-year-old boy from the "town drunk" who used to busk in Rodgersville, Tennessee. Tony calls the melody simple and old-fashioned. I learned it clawhammer style, though he plays it 2-finger style. I also reversed his first and second parts and he didn't mind at all!

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.

This crooked song from Kentucky is a good intro for me to J.P. Fraley's fiddling. John Hartford String Band does a great version, too, and it's in Jeff Titon's Old-Time Kentucky Fiddle Tunes book.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 6/23/17, Maysville is a town in northeastern Kentucky and the past scene of tobacco trade. J.P. Fraley rode in his father's wagon as a child in the 1930's and learned to fiddle this tune from his father. Oddly, the tuning I used for this recording is sawmill. I added a bit of cello banjo for accompaniment.

This version of J.P. Fraley's fiddle tune includes banjo, mandolin, and cello banjo. I'm interested to see how the cello banjo can be used for accompaniment.
