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 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.

This week's old-time Tune of the Week comes from Uncle Bunt Stephens, who was the winner of the 1926 fiddle contest presented by Henry Ford. The tune is simple enough to allow fun with rhythm and variations.

Is there room in my heart for the Cello banjo?

In Carolan's Cottage I'm given to think of the blind harpist, Turlough O’Carolan, beginning in the late 1600's, wandering from "big house" to "big house," earning a living by entertaining his hosts with song and harp. His must have had his own small cottage when he eventually married and raised five children. Or perhaps the cottage of this tune was one of a few from his childhood, in particular the one on the land of a major patroness, Mrs. MacDermott Roe. It was here he caught smallpox and lost his sight. Subsequently he received instruction on the harp and was given a horse and guide to make his way in the world.

This song is so pretty it's hard to imagine it's about a quarrel, but I think the landlady didn't want him to keep drinking her supply of ale, so he argues about it. At least that's what the biographic sources say.

A song O'Carolan wrote in honor of Dr. John Stafford, friend and patron, in celebration when he prescribed whiskey to treat depression, after the blind harpist had become depressed when another doctor had him refrain from whiskey for a medical condition.

In my continuing effort to study O'Carolan's works, I've found another gem of a melody, #171 in his notated songs from Donal O'Sullivan's biography Carolan,The Life, Times, and Music of an Irish Harper; and tabbed nicely in Ron Hughes O'Carolan for the 5 String Banjo book.

Ed Haley (1885 - 1951), a blind fiddler from WV who settled in Catlettsburg, KY, raised a family with his blind wife. Both were professional musicians.

I like the way the modes change in this tune--from minor in the A part to mixolydian in the B part. It was also interesting to play the minor sound out of open G tuning--I had to avoid hitting the second string unless it was fretted.
