This original song by Owen 'Snake' Chapman is named after a mountain feature close to his home in Letcher County, Kentucky. He wrote many tunes and reminds me of Banjo Hangout's Jim Reed from Pike County, Kentucky who also wrote many tunes and played with Owen.

For the old-time Tune of the Week 10/30/15. Many pickers have been inspired by Adam Hurt's lovely version. I thought I'd go back a little farther historically speaking and listened to DeCosta Waltz's Southern Broadcasters recordings of the 1920's, which is very similar to Adam's. I believe that the other historic recordings of The Wandering Boy (i.e. The Carter Family and the Stanley Brothers) are related. The lyrics are sad and meaningful, sung from a mother's view.

For the Tune of the Week, August 10, 2013. This is based on Kentucky fiddler Perry Riley's recording. It has six measures in a part, which is rare. The upbeat feeling goes along with the story of going from one state (West Virginia) to the town of Warfield in another state (Kentucky) just because it was legal to drink there at the time.

As played by Emmett Lundy, I like the image of waves given by the song. It begins with something low and jumps to something syncopated up high -- like a big wave getting ready to break.

This arrangement is in old G tuning, played down a step (fCFCD) from the playing of Edden Hammonds and Alan Jabbour. I'm working on tunes I can transpose to this tuning as a *homework assignment* from Adam Hurt.

For the TOTW, 2/27/15. Having read Stephen Wade's book The Beautiful Music Around Us, I got to read a chapter about Luther Strong. He was crass when drunk, but oh, what a fiddler! His family adored him when he was sober, but left him when he drank. Then they returned, time after time. When I play the tune I think of the part of him that was kind when life is good and everyone's happy.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 7/4/14 from the fiddling of Jimmy Driftwood (1907 - 1998) of Timbo, AR. He said that two of his uncles, half-brothers to his father, were half-Cherokee and lived with them for years. I'm playing in a very unusual tuning of eBGBD

Our diligent TOTW presenter, Carl Baron, gave us four versions of Wednesday Night Waltz to hear. I chose the ones from the Kessinger Brothers, because Clark Kessinger was such an influential fiddler in his day, and from Melvin Wine, who Carl actually got to play in West Virginia with back in the day.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 12/15/17, Wes Muir learned this during the Civil War era. Missouri fiddler Nile Wilson (1912 - 2008) passed the tune on. He learned at a young age to play fiddle from his grandfathers and father. He plays at a fast dance tempo and I can imagine this tune as a polka, though it's said Mr. Wilson's favorite tunes were for square dances.

For the Tune of the Week, 4/19/13. Like many, I learned it from Miles Krassen's Clawhammer Book of the 70's. Hope he knows we're still playing it.

TOTW 29 October 2021 - Western Country*

Calvin Cole, recorded by the Library of Congress in the 1930's, played banjo for Peter Hoover in the 1960's and a CD was released with 37 cuts. It was said that in his 80's, Calvin was still dancing at the local Fancy Gap dances like he was a teenager. And his banjo speed on Western Country was twice mine!

It seemed like this well-known fiddle tune should be in my repertoire. I've finally learned Westphalia Waltz when I came across it in a Ken Perlman clawhammer book.

This Tune of the Week for 12/18/15 is a modern song written by banjo player Dave Carter with a striking Native American influence on the lyrics. When he accompanied this with banjo, it played a harmony to the sung melody, which makes a lovely sound that grew on me the more I listened. However, I only used Dave's singing as a guide to this arrangement, except for the very end, which was an instrumental tag. Ironically, Dave died young in 2002, perhaps in synchrony with his own lyrics about "When I Go." "Bear me my brother under your wings, I will strike fell like lightning when I go...Stand in the mist where my fire used to burn, I will camp on the night breeze when I go...Do not worry for my comfort, do not sorrow for me so, All your diamond tears will rise up and adorn the sky beside me when I go."
