I'm attempting to record and upload via my iPhone, as my computer is in the shop. I first heard Red Prairie Dawn by Don Huber's enjoyable band who was playing at an outdoor event. Next I heard it on Adam Hurt's lovely new CD "Artifacts." I worked it out in an odd tuning -- aDGBE, tuned down four steps for cello banjo. I'd like to know more about Garry Harrison who recorded the Dear Old Illinois anthology. He wrote a few tunes, like this one, and seems to have played fast and energetically. Please let me know what you think about the recording quality. Thanks for listening G.

Jim has posted his incredible music again after a time away from BHO. This is one he wrote a while back and I'm inspired to try and learn it now. The notes flow. A poet could describe its beauty better than I!

Two songs that remind me of people and places. My mom used to play and sing Finiculi Finicula on piano from the Fireside Book of Folk Songs.

In my excitement in finding another great resource to learn Turlough O'Carolan tunes, I've begun with two from the book and CD compilation by Art Edelstein called Fair Melodies. Both tunes were written in honor of O'Carolan's "patrons", the people who supported him as he traveled through Ireland in the late 1600's and 1700's earning a living as a blind harper. Both tunes are played clawhammer style on a cello banjo.

For the Tune of the Week, March 15, 2013, Richmond is related to Cuckoo's Nest as played by Virginian fiddler Roscoe Parish (1897 - 1984).

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 2/7/20, Ricketts Hornpipe is an old dance tune. It's said John Bill Ricketts brought the tune from England to America in the late 1800's with his circus, which John Durang of Pennsylvania joined (and had a hornpipe named after him, too). It's said a hornpipe can be slower to allow the dancer more intricate steps.

As I listened to this original song the first time the melody happily drove along just like the title suggests. But Jim's 3-finger picked melodic song is so incredibly intricate and skillful, I had to simplify it with this clawhammer version so I could enjoy playing it, too.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, this arrangement of Road to Boston comes from the musical notation of fifer William Morris at the beginning of the American Revolution. The soldiers must have felt upbeat when they marched to it.

This week's old-time Tune of the Week coincides with D-Day and was played by a fifer from the British Isles as his troop landed at Normandy. The Isles referred to in the song are the Hebrides west of Scotland. If you look at tourist advertisements for the area it's quite a beautiful region. I attempted to add a rhythmic technique called Scottish snaps which makes it sound Gaelic, so they say. They're basically dotted eighth notes played with the fast part first and the dotted part last.

The old-time Tune of the Week, 8/5/16 is really Rochester Schottische, as played by Tommy Jarrell. I decided to turn the 4/4 timing to waltz time.

I heard this on Ken Elk.'s video recently and it became one I "had" to learn. I'd heard it before, but who knows when and where. West Virginian fiddler Franklin George is credited with it, but he got it from someone else, and so on.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 5/18/18, this tune was learned by a young Luther Davis (1889 - 1986) from his neighbors Isom and Fielden Rector of Dalhart, VA near Galax). Luther said he didn't like it, but learned it out of respect for his older mentors.

Here's Nebraskan fiddler Bob Walters' tune which was an old time Tune of the Week in 2011. Bob Walters was called the smoothest fiddler he'd ever heard by R.P. Christeson, who compiled hundreds of fiddle tunes in his two volumes called Old-Time Fiddler's Repertory. I first heard Chuck Levy play this and felt challenged to give it a try, as well as learn more about its source. I'm not sure whether the Jordan refers to the river in Israel or a town in the USA. What do you think?

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 7/21/17, Rolling River comes from the Dear Old Illinois collection from the playing of Richland County, Illinois fiddler Delbar Tarpley, born in 1900. A nice tune, I'd say.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 4/15/17, Roscoe comes from the fiddling of Kyle Creed, who previously I only was familiar with as a well-known banjo picker and maker. It's a good dance tune.

Coal Creek, Virginia fiddler Roscoe Parish (1897 - 1984) was visited and recorded in the 80's by Andy Cahan and Alice Gerrard. I found this tune in the Milliner-Koken American Fiddle Tunes Book and an MP3 of Alice performing it. Its melody is like a music box! As I'm researching Roscoe Parish right now; it's given me more insight into his music. This tune is related to Flying Indian and O Lassie, Art Thou Sleeping Yet?, indicating it has deep roots.

John Salyer of Kentucky is credited with this version of the song in Jeff Titon's book of old-time Kentucky fiddle tunes. It's a beautiful and crooked tune.

For the Tune of the Week, 4/4/14. Jay Ungar has an art for writing modern beautiful old-time tunes. I like the title of this tune because I'm from California and the early history of this state is interesting. I'd recommend reading William Henry Dana, Jr.'s book "Two Years the Mast" for a literary picture of going "round the horn."

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