I wanted to learn a Franklin George tune after seeing and playing with him at the Berkeley Old-Time Music festival and happened to pick this tune after listening to it as I commuted. It turns out to be a tune he learned from a book and I believe that book to be Samuel Bayard's Dance to the Fiddle, March to the Fife, song #317. It's a song with a long history, some of it dramatically political. I listened to Cathy Fink's version, too, to come up with this one.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 5/1/15, the second tune was learned recently in a lesson. It reminded me of a similar one we'd learned 40 years ago from Chief O'Neill's book of Irish music, so I happily brushed up on Boys of Bluehill. I think its influence has given more of a lilt to Twin Sisters.

It's said in the Library of Congress that Henry Reed learned this from Quince Dillon, the fifer, and that it was a tune used by the British to retreat from their defeat in the Battle of New Orleans. Alan Jabbour recorded Henry Reed.

My adaptation of Adam Hurt's version resulted from an assignment he gave to explore the Old Cumberland Gap tuning of f#BEAD (though raised one step). Adam's original Brushy Fork of John's Creek was based on Art Stamper and the old-time Tune of the Week has a video of Art's father, Hiram Stamper, playing the tune. Adam played it on the Earth Tones CD on a bottle-neck gourd banjo in SRB tuning (fDGCD). That CD was my inspiration to seek him out as a teacher.

Learned listening to Ed Haley's fiddling. It's challenging, like running through the brush. Yuck--stickers, ticks, tangles.

For the old time Tune of the Week, June 26, 2015. It's a catchy dance tune named after a mountain in Virginia. Unfortunately something happened to my first uploaded MP3, which won't play at all, and it was suggested that I upload it again.

Listening to Bob Flesher's clawhammer tunes is inspiring, though I play it with 3-finger picking. He's Banjo Hangout's own "Sandy Bob," aka Dr. Horsehair (drhorsehair.com). And a luthier as well, what a talent!

From the playing of Mississippi fiddler John Hatcher in 1939, Buffalo Gals is the old-time Tune of the Week for June 30, 2017. It resembles the familiar Buffalo Gals, but is definitely different. I put the two together so you can hear how they do go together well. I'm playing a small-scale Docs Banjo.

Learned from the fiddling of WV Jimmy Triplett who learned from Burl Hammons. It's one of those crooked West Virginia tunes in modal tuning, symbolic to me of this special enclave of engaging old-time music. It was hard to tab because I didn't know which measures to make crooked. In the end, it's like a winding river -- it should have no measures or divisions. It just flows the way it flows...The cello banjo ended up tuned to a sawmill tuning with a raised 5th string to play along with Jimmy's recording (the whole album happily and cheaply available on Bandcamp).

From the playing of WV fiddler Israel Welch as played by Noah Cline for the Tune of the Week, 8/9/19. Israel fiddled so well that even in the army when stationed in Newfoundland during WWII he entertained the troops. Played on a Gold Tone cello banjo.

For the TOTW 5/16/14, played on a Mac Traynham Whyte Laydie openback. I first heard clawhammer banjo by Mac Benford playing this Ed Haley fiddle piece, then listened to both recordings to learn it.

For the TOTW 5/16/14, this version of Cabin Creek comes from Ed Haley's great fiddling and Mac Benford's clawhammer interpretation on a CD called "Half Past Four." I'm playing a Gold Tone cello banjo and my husband, Kit, is playing mandolin.

For the Tune of the Week (OT) 5/16/14. The Cabin Creek version by Ernie Carpenter seems to be closest to two of the 4-part Ed Haley version. Elk River Blues is credited to West Virginia fiddler Ernie Carpenter, great-grandson of Sol Carpenter of Shelvin' Rock (an interesting story in American history), after his family home was flooded by the construction of Sutton Dam.

For the TOTW 11/29/13 this Cacklin' Hen came from the Coon Creek Girls with a bit of Chubby Wise and David Margolin with Yigal Zan thrown in. She's a timid little hen, but she's clucking a bit Must be a Banty!

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 11/23/18, as played by Carl Baron on fiddle, learned from Melvin Wine, who Carl knew personally. After keeping up with those two fiddlers for this recording, I'll be slowing back down to my normal tempo. :)

The first recording of Lee Hammon's Calloway as learned from Dwight Diller was on a Bart Reiter with a White Laydie tone ring. This one is on a simpler, lighter banjo with no tone ring for comparison sake.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 11/20/15, this version comes from West Virginia fiddler French Carpenter, grandson of Solomon Carpenter who played a tune he called Camp Chase when he was a prisoner-of-war at that location in Ohio during the Civil War. It's said that by playing the tune best Sol actually won his freedom. Check out the TOTW for more info.
