For the Tune of the Week, 2/28/14, this version is mostly from Bigfoot Stringband and Rhys Jones' fiddling. He based it on Robert Sykes (1914-1994). It's a much bluesier Black Eyed Susie than I've ever heard and I've been curious about it, so TOTW has again provided me a good learning platform. Tune in, if you haven't! I'm playing a very lightweight banjo with nylgut strings.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 12/29/17, this originally was recorded in 1949 by John Sharp, a Kentucky native living in Tennessee. It has resemblance to both Polly Wolly Doodle and a bit of Old Joe Clark. My arrangement comes from the Canote Brothers.

The old-time Tune of the Week for 3/11/16 is Black Jack Grove as recorded by the Lomax's in 1939, played by Texas fiddler Lake N. Porter. The other Black Jack Grove comes from Kentucky fiddler Walter McNew. I play them both here for comparison's sake, which worked out since I arranged them both in open G tuning.

From Kentucky fiddler Clyde Davenport, this is the old-time Tune of the Week for 1/6/17. Clyde's fiddling is always great and goes along well with clawhammer banjo style. I'd hate that snake, though. Reminds me of the meat bees here that only bite my husband's toe!

A favorite tune, a little too early for the blossoms here in the California foothill springtime, but with lots of good memories picking berries with the grandkids in summer.

A wonderful champion fiddler, Tatiana Hargreaves, plays the Tune of the Week and bases it upon the older fiddler Emma Lee Dickerson. In an interview Tatiana claims that's her doppelg?nger, a new word for me. They look alike in photos. The tune is very familiar to me, but Emma Lee's is unique, so I also include the more traditional one in this recording.

From the playing of Kentucky fiddler Clyde Davenport, who lived till recently to the ripe old age of 99 and who learned Blackfoot from his father. I want to call him Crooked Clyde. Listen why.

There was really a harper in Ireland called Maire Dhall (Blind Mary) who is known to have taught harp to friends of Turlough O'Carolan (1670 - 1738), so it's assumed he knew her, too. The melody is rather dramatic and you get a feeling of respect for this woman, who, like O'Carolan, must have traveled, played harp, and taught for a living.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 1/13/17, this version comes from Missouri fiddler Cyril Stinnett. I liked it because the B part reminds of me Flop-Eared Mule.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, this version comes from Owen Snake Chapman of Pike County, Kentucky. He learned it from Kenny Baker's father, Thaddeus. Mine is slowed-down and I can imagine going up a river cautiously in the wilderness. I play it in open G tuning on a Mac Traynham Whyte Laydie. Check out this week's TOTW for more information and links. http://www.banjohangout.org/topic/291188

Tennessee fiddler Charlie Acuff played this one and told the story of the 1886 campaign for governor between two fiddling brothers of different political parties. Bob Taylor won and this was one of the tunes linked to that famous campaign. Charlie said the tune was first called "Old Squeaking Fiddle." It's waltz time, not march, but it all seems to fit in with an unusual story, and very appropriate on this election day.

The group I play with on Sundays--the Rough and Ready Fruit Jar Pickers--does a lot of songs that our band leader likes and he used to play pedal steel guitar. So here's Maiden's Prayer, Steel Guitar Rag, and Roly Poly (with some quiet vocals in honor of my new cello banjo arriving this week).

Kentucky fiddler William H. Stepp so impressed Allan and Elizabeth Lomax in their 1937 Library and Congress recording, that Mr. Lomax recommended the tune to Aaron Copland who subsequently used it in his famous hoe-down piece in the ballet "Rodeo." The story is well-told by Stephen Wade in his new book The Beautiful Music All Around Us. Mr. Stepp played it an breakneck speed, different from the more charming versions abounding in other old-time recordings, but it was also impressive enough to use in the famous commercial: Beef--It's What's for Dinner.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 4/21/17, this version comes from North Carolina fiddler (born in TN) Bill Hensley. The alternate title, Whip the Devil Around the Stump fits the music, especially when played at Mr. Hensley's incredible speed.

These two songs are mentioned in Bill Monroe's song "Uncle Penn." His uncle fiddled them at dances, so Monroe grew up hearing them and even accompanying him on guitar.

I wanted to learn a Franklin George tune after seeing and playing with him at the Berkeley Old-Time Music festival and happened to pick this tune after listening to it as I commuted. It turns out to be a tune he learned from a book and I believe that book to be Samuel Bayard's Dance to the Fiddle, March to the Fife, song #317. It's a song with a long history, some of it dramatically political. I listened to Cathy Fink's version, too, to come up with this one.
