From the collection called "Now That's a Good Tune: Masters of Missouri Fiddling" this tune was learned from Bill Katon (1864 - 1934) by Bob Walters who taught Cyril Stinnett who taught Charlie Walden. I'm learning about these venerated Missouri fiddlers and you can hear all the tunes on the Slippery Hill website.

Learned from Alan Jabbour's fiddling, who learned it directly from West Virginian fiddler Henry Reed, recorded by Alan extensively in the 60's. This tune is different from Billy in the Lowground. Contacting Alan was easy and he's most helpful to answer my questions about the tune.

I first learned this clawhammer, then recorded it 3-finger picking, now am re-learning it for clawhammer. It's tuned to double C.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 10/9/15, this comes from the fiddling of West Virginian Melvin Wine and the accompanying tab of Carl Baron. Check it out: http://www.banjohangout.org/topic/309849. I'd rather have a black cat in the briar patch, happily hunting, than have him cross my path. :)

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.

TOTW, 2/2/24, Boatin' Up Big Ole Sandy

The river title is familiar, but this is a unique tune by "Papa Jake," a Virginia fiddler recorded by David Bragger of the Old Time Tiki Parlour. The TOTW presenter went up the neck, so I thought that would be an added challenge this week. The tuning is open C here, gCGCE. Normally the tune is played in the key of D.

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

Bob Taylor's March

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.
