Played by Kentucky legendary fiddler Buddy Thomas. Every time I learn one of his tunes I feel like I'm doing extra credit homework for a master's thesis. They're always challenging -- he was a heckuva a fiddler!

The Cat Came Back is the Tune of the Week for April 5th, 2013. This one doesn't sound like the TOTW, though I've now learned that this folksong from my childhood does have older roots. The closest one I've heard seems to be Fiddlin' John Carson's recording in the 20's. My first graders here sing it for the first time.

The Eagle's Whistle/Bonaparte's Retreat march medley

Researching more about the current old-time TOTW, 9/19/14, I looked for the Irish march tune linked to Bonaparte's Retreat through the research of Samuel Bayard. In a Fiddle Hangout link I found the notation by Patrick Weston Joyce in his 1909 book Old Irish Folk Music and Songs. The first part I'm playing comes from Joyce. The second part is my own interpretation of how Bonaparte's Retreat may have evolved from such a march. The Eagle's Whistle was said to be the marching song of the O'Donovan clan of Ireland.

This tune of O'Carolan's has a classical, ethereal sound. I dedicate it to Laurence Diehl, friend of O'Carolan's music and inspiring to all us little folk.

From the playing of Virginian fiddler C.B. Wohlford in 1938, this old-time Tune of the Week was recently recorded by Bruce Molsky, a favorite fiddler and banjo player of mine. My arrangement is based on the older source recording.

This Tune of the Week is a bit hard in deciding what to do with that one note, so I choked it. Imagine losing a hog in the wild and trying to get him back to the pen. I guess a couple of good hound dogs could do the job.

From R.D. Lunceford's tab in Banjo Newsletter, Nov. '99;. I played it faster than this and than remembered that R.D. said it was pretty and melancholy, but not sad. Slowing it down seemed like the right thing.

This week's Tune of the Week was in honor of St. Patrick's Day. It's actually a drinking song about a man who was disliked and the town celebrates upon his death. You've got to hear the lyrics to appreciate it, so tune in to: http://www.banjohangout.org/topic/300790

From the fiddling of Bruce Greene who learned it from Uncle George Nicholson (born in Laurel Co., KY in 1854). This tune reminds me of another I've heard before. For some reason the tune gives me a deep sense of deja vu when Bruce plays it. It's on his solo fiddle CD Five Miles of Ellum Wood.

One more try for the old-time Tune of the Week, 10/27/17. This time it's in the 2-finger style -- a very simple, play-the-words version.

This traditional song is one dear to my heart, the old-time Tune of the Week for 10/27/17, also called I Gave My Love a Cherry. Since the poster, Cyndy, did such a beautiful job in open G tuning I thought to look for another tuning to try and found bDGAD. It's listed as "A Tony Trischka D/G tuning" in the Anita Kermode list of tunings I like referring to. Funny, but my 5th string didn't like being tuned down that low. It get tuning itself back up! I think it gives the song an old-time mountain feeling, which is good, since it was an old English song brought to Appalachia by settlers.
