A sleepy waltz. Kenny Baker recorded it. It modulates from C to A and back to C.

Learned from the playing of Jim Reed who says he learned it as a boy from his father. It's not like Stringbean's version, but when I first heard it I knew I wanted to learn Jim's way. Jim picks it, I clawhammer, and, as Jim tells in his interview with Paul Roberts, his dad played this clawhammer style, too, on a beautiful old Bacon banjo that Jim snuck and played.

For the Tune of the Week 5/13/13, based on Tommy Jarrell's fiddling. It's different from the tune as I learned it growing up. Played on my Bart Reiter Whyte Laydie in the tuning eDGBD.

Learning from Kentucky fiddler J.P. Fraley is always a treat. His style is always flowing and cheerful. J.P. says he thinks he learned Sail Away Ladies from his father, Richard, though at first he cited Ed Haley, the famous blind fiddler. As a child, J.P. would listen to Ed for hours on the street corner of Ashland while his father was on business. This version doesn't resemble any other Sail Away Ladies I've heard.

Learned from the playing of Virginia fiddler Luther Davis for the Tune of the Week, 8/3/18, this is yet another melody with the title Sail Away Ladies. Luther played it at a relaxed pace and had learned it from a friend named Charlie Higgins, also one of his mentors. I'm playing on my Mac Traynham Whyte Laydie in the key of G.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 8/25/17, this comes from the fiddling of Kentuckian Pat Kingerly, born in 1912. Funny, but somebody posted it on youtube as "Sow's Got Mud Between Her Toes." That title makes sense!

Here's Sally Ann. The first part is from J.P. Fraley. The second is Scruggs. Oh, how he blessed us. The third is simple chording. The other version, Wistful Sally Ann, comes from Pete Wernick.

For the Tune of the Week, 8/23/13. This crooked tune is a pretty one, learned from a video of Carl Jones, based on the playing of fiddlers Harvey Sampson, Lester McCumber, and Ward Jarvis. It reminds me of another TOTW, Little Rose is Gone.

Learned from Pat Cloud's book Key to 5 String Banjo. Also similar to Katy Hill. Very pentatonic (Pat Cloud's major focus in this instructional book).

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 8/19/16, this is a dance tune from Northumbria in England. It's often played on a melodeon and uilleann pipes; here it's clawhammered.

An obscure tune for the old-time Tune of the Week, 10/20/17, this tune probably resembles well the style of Israel Welch, WV fiddler and multi-instrumentalist. The Welch Brothers (four of them and a cousin) had a popular dance band in the 1930's and all were skillful musicians. Brothers Tom and Israel Welch were still alive in the 1980's and could still play outstanding dance music.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, Salt Spring is a modern composition by John Reischman, an excellent mandolinist I've been fortunate to hear, along with his talented Jaybirds band, many times.

Salty River Reel is inspirational for learning more about Missouri fiddling. This old-time Tune of the Week, 2/4/17, comes from Cyril Stinnett, Missouri fiddler (1912 - 1986), though he didn't appear to have written the tune. He was a precise player, very shy they say, and very successful at fiddling competitions. His style came from the north Missouri region, influenced by Canadian hornpipes, and one of his important sources was Casey Jones, who recorded this tune in 1951. Cyril's first name is pronounced "Serl" and the recording of this piece was in the 1960's at a fiddle contest. It's upbeat, so hope you enjoy!

James Bryan, the smoothest, greatest fiddler, learned this from Jim Cauthen and recorded it on his recent CD with Carl Jones, Cricket's Lullaby. Another crooked song.

TOTW 22 May 2020 - Oscar Wright's "Sandy River"

From the playing of West Virginian Oscar Wright for the TOTW, 5/22/20. As our presenter says, it's a hypnotic type of tune, but I finally found a nice embedded melody.

Burnett and Rutherford played it as a dance tune called Ladies on a Steamboat. My mother once said that great tunes have a minor chord. This one has E minor. Does anyone agree with her? Ever since she told me that, I've found that my favorite tunes do have a minor.

Henry Reed learned these from the Civil War fifer Quince Dillon. The two tunes are both in Am and one leads easily to the other in a medley.
