Via Bruce Greene in his Five Miles from Ellum CD, Bruce gleaned Old Time Brickyard Joe from James "Pop" Baker (b.1889 from Franklin Co., KY). Bruce said the fiddler James was part of a band called The Sixty-Fivers because they were all at least that age.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 7/15/16, the fiddler credited with the tune is Bill Livers of Owen County, Kentucky. He apparently was a well-liked character and entertaining performer. His grandfather taught him this tune and it's named after a dog, with the sharp barking being heard quite clearly!

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 4/3/15, this version comes from Parley Parsons of Galax, VA, playing with Alice Gerard's guitar back-up. Mr. Parsons also recorded Virginia Reel with Paul Brown, available on Slippery Hill website, but it's a different tune. I really wonder whether people dance the Virginia Reel to either versions and haven't heard them played when I've seen that dance performed....

My father used to play the West Side Story album where I heard this long ago. I discovered I could play all of it out of closed chord positions and find it's quite fun.

This tune is probably Canadian. It used to be popular at fiddle contests. There's something poignant about it.

When I first learned this piece, 3-finger style, I hadn't checked out the composer's original recording. In this recording I play Canadian composer Frankie Rodgers' Ookpik Owl and then add the first version I'd learned. An Ookpik owl is the same as a Snowy Owl and is a main character in stories and legends, as well as being a popular Canadian stuffed animal. There are Inuit stories about Ookpik, which I think would be fun to collect. As my grandson is currently studying owls, this is a good time to re-visit and share Ookpik Waltz. It was a popular fiddle contest tune for a while and my grandson just began violin lessons. Good connections are made with a banjo!

For the Tune of the Week, 1/3/14, based on Franklin George's addition of a third part which may have been learned from Oscar Wright. The original seems to have been learned by Henry Reed listening to a steam-powered calliope! This is the first tune I ever worked out when first learning clawhammer in the 70's, so it's good to re-visit and learn more about it now. I start it off here in waltz time, then speed it up to 4/4 time to get ready to go over the waterfall.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 2/12/16, this was recorded on Thanksgiving Day, 1951, by Nebraska fiddler Bob Walters. I learned it listening to Dwight Lamb, who was befriended and mentored by Mr. Walters after hearing him on the radio in the 1940's and driving from Iowa to seek him out. This is tune #80 in R.P. Christeson's Old-Time Fiddle Repertory, Vol. 1 collection.

For Tune of the Week, 3/14/14, from the fiddling of Lotus Dickey, played on a Gold Tone cello banjo tuned dADF#A. The tune was apparently first played on a fife and later by fiddlers. The history of an Oyster River Massacre in present-day Durham, New Hampshire goes back to the 1690's.

Learned from Yigal Zan's video with David Margolin's fiddling, Yigal attributes this version to Fiddlin' Arthur Smith. I've wanted to learn this ever since hearing Bill Monroe's instrumental. The title makes me think of Irish immigrants working on the railroad, but I don't know if that's the case.

Learned from the fiddling of West Virginian Melvin Wine, thanks to Dave Douglass who uploaded this hard-to-find resource. Check out the Tune of the Week for 10/10/14. Pearl Blake was one of 14 siblings who died young in the mines, but played tfiddle and this was his favorite tune. http://www.banjohangout.org/topic/292592

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 10/31/14. The history behind this name is fascinating. Check out the TOTW: http://www.banjohangout.org/topic/293687 George Washington called Peter Francisco his "one-man army." I discovered I have the 1976 US stamp created in his honor, carrying a half-ton cannon on his shoulder! The tune appeared in Knauf's "Virginia Reels" book in 1839. I'm playing on a Gold Tone cello banjo, so it's in the key of D, played in what's equivalent to open G tuning.

From the transcription in Francis O'Neill's Music of Ireland collection of 1903. He wrote that it was well towards the top of the list at the time, found in most American piano publications which included reels and hornpipes. Peter Street is a good dance tune, so they say.

For the Tune of the Week, 3-6-15, this one comes from Missouri and originally probably from Scotland. It has the feeling of a light country dance. I listened to my favorite fiddle player, James Bryan, who got it from a recording of the original source -- Art Galbraith. See the TOTW for more info and my tab. http://www.banjohangout.org/topic/300431

From the playing of Dwight Diller with Jimmy Tripplett. Dwight describes this tune in the notes on page 48 of his extensive notes for Yew Pine Mountain, a CD not available. He learned it from Burl and Sherman Hammons. Here's the link to the notes including his tab in the tuning of gBDGD: http://dwightdiller.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/C.-DLLR-TabBook-2006_07_31-page-numbers-correct.pdf I do an up-the-neck B part. My tab in common open G tuning is on a current Sound Off post.
