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.

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.

This was the first song I figured something out with melodic fingering. Bill Monroe is given credit for writing this, though it's very similar to I Don't Love Nobody.

As played by North Carolina fiddler Marion Reece (1874 - 1941). I can hear the scolding in the A part very clearly!

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 12/23/16, Anthony H. Clapp (1749 - 1816) -- said to have been an excellent fiddler and a slave belonging to the family of William Sydney Mount (famed painter of The Banjo Player) -- wrote and named this tune for the town in which he lived. Mount had it in his collections of fiddle tunes, which are kept at the Stony Brooks Museum in Long Island, NY. See this week's TOTW for more info.

For the old-time TOTW, 9/7/18, Shaking Off the Acorns comes from the playing of West Virginian fiddler Edden Hammons, who would have been 113 years old today. Most everybody else records it as Shaking Down the Acorns and it's definitely one of my favorite tunes of all time. It's modal and the first part has 12 measures with three 4-measure phrases.

This was Carolan's first composition at age 21, blinded since 18 years old, and embarking for the first time on his journey as an itinerant harper. The squire at his first stop suggested he compose a song about two neighboring hills where two fairy hosts had battled. Carolan's genius for writing was thus born.
