It's always a challenge to arrange a Kenny Baker tune for clawhammer banjo, but his music is so good that it's fun to try. The cello banjo chimes in a bit, too.

For the Tune of the Week, 4/25/14, this tune is one of Samuel Bayard's Hill Country Tune collection, available on line. It feels like a hornpipe to me. Check out this week's old-time TOTW. Learned from the fiddle and harmonica recording of Pennsylvanians Mark Tamsula and Richard Withers who have specialized in making recordings from Samuel Bayard's extensive work.

This traditional air honors the Irish soldiers who left Ireland to fight for France. The last time they left marked the 1691 Treaty of Limerick , a momentous time in Ireland's history which ended the Williamite war and the reign of King James, who left, too, after the Battle of the Boyne (which has a namesake tune as well). When the Chieftains recorded The Wild Geese they were picturing women singing on shore while the soldiers sailed off forevermore to fight elsewhere. At the end of my recording listen for the geese flying off...

Listening to Ed Haley, it's hard to clearly hear his fiddling. This was Tune of the Week for 3/28/14 and has 3 parts instead of 2 in the other examples of historic recordings for this tune. After looking at a map we found there are actually three forks of the Big Sandy River, so it makes sense to have three parts. I wonder if Ed Haley performed on that river and wish the John Hartford book about his life would be published, even if unfinished.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, this is a three part tune from Ohio which reminds me a bit of Devil's Dream. I play it clawhammer style melodically and can see it eventually becoming more rhythmic and less notey. But here it is for now, from the original recording on Slippery Hill by Ohio fiddler John Hutchison who learned it from his father who learned it from another fiddler.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 10/2/2015, Tippin' Back the Corn was written by a Chicago fiddler, Jordan Wankoff. This version comes from Lynn Chirp Smith's fiddling. I wouldn't be tipping back the corn, but I do feel its joyfulness!

Our Tune of the Week doesn't have the familiar sound of a fiddle tune, and indeed, it was written by a mandolinist, John Goodin, of the group Contratopia, who sadly passed away last year. To get his notes I reverted to cello banjo. I understood the banjo player of the group played Too Many Goats with a capo on the seventh fret -- not me. Now that would be climbing as high as any mountain goat. :)

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 6/8/18, Trouble on My Mind was recorded by Kentucky fiddler John Salyer's sons at home. Salyer never recorded commercially, but was an excellent fiddler. This tune is crooked in the last measure when it repeats and is unusual in having six measures in the A part and eight in the B part.

Played by Doc Watson, this tune was popularized at the same name in Lenoir, North Carolina--not that far from Deep Gap where Doc lived. It's an interesting piece and makes quite a left hand banjo workout.

This tune is notated by William Sydney Mount, dated in 1848. It has a rhythmic sound called "Scottish snaps," which I had to look up in Ken Perlman resources to define. You'll hear them. I'm enjoying learning more about this famous painter of The Banjo Player.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 11/27/15. I learned this from an Arkansas fiddler's recording when she was 93 years old! She's now 99. The title wasn't really Uncle Henry, but she learned it from him. Check out the discussion for more: http://www.banjohangout.org/topic/311807.

Learned for the old-time Tune of the Week, 12/19/14, I arranged this by using notation in the Milliner-Koken American Fiddle Tunes book for Audley Cable's fiddling, as well as Bruce Greene's recording of it on Slippery Hill. He didn't know the name of the tune when Bruce recorded him in 1985, but told him he'd learned it from Mr. Jamison.

This tune with the strange title goes by several other titles. I chose to learn by using the fiddle notation in the Samuel Bayard book, Dance to the Fiddle March to the Fife, and to play it on the cello banjo in an equivalent tuning to double C.

Upper Lehigh was played in the first Brandywine Old-time Music Convention in 1974. Carl Baron was there and heard this lively polka and has presented it as the Tune of the Week. I've added the cello banjo for accompaniment and hope the recording quality is decent enough -- I'm not sure where the static came from.
