Learned from folklorist, song collector, and skillful melodic banjo clawhammer picker Andy Cahan. I heard of him through his collections in Virginia with Alice Gerard, especially of Roscoe Parrish. This tune is one that Francis O'Neill published in his eminent book of Irish Music published in the first decade of the 1900's. It was named his favorite by the man, Edward Cronin of Tiperary, who played it for him in Chicago when O'Neill was chief of police and collected Irish tunes as a hobby. It's also the first hornpipe notated in that book with 1,850 selections. Perhaps it really is his favorite.

From the fiddling of Brad Leftwich on Bob Carlin's seminal CD Banging and Sawing. We can't figure out the title yet, but it sounds a bit ragtime to me.

Inspired by David Grier and friends. Chinquapins are like chestnuts. One thing I do enjoy is gathering pine nuts.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 6/9/17, Chinquapin Hunting is named for the wild chestnut that grows in parts of the country. My arrangement is based on Bruce Molsky's lively playing.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 10-28-16, New Yorker Ira Bernstein wrote this tune in the 80's. He is known most famously as a dancer, specializing in Appalachian flatfoot, clogging, and tap. I was quite surprised this week when I learned he wrote a fiddle tune, which is also his favorite instrument to dance to. The A part begins with a minor and the B part modulates, so it's not a common fiddle tune. It's catchy and was actually played in my neck of the woods when Earl White played at a bluegrass festival in Grass Valley, California. However, I admit I'd have learned the tune if it wasn't for this week's TOTW.

Kentucky fiddler Jim Bowles heard the tune from an old colored fiddler who played it for dances and it's said that the tune may pre-date Civil War days. It has an unusual pattern of AABBBBB. The B part has variations, however, with three different parts as I heard it played. I'm playing this on a short scale Doc's Banjo tuned to a double C tuning. I get a happy Christmas Eve feeling from it and look forward to that day soon this year.

Melvin Wine's father traditionally played this for the kids. Along with the simple gifts of candy and fruit, with biscuits for breakfast, the tune became a part of Melvin's cherished memories.

For the TOTW, 12/13/13, this is an original by Chuck Levy named for a disastrous diesel oil fire upon an actual river in Ohio. I'm playing cello banjo with Chuck's video and hope the recording quality is bearable.

From the playing of Alabama fiddler Sam McCracken, here's a kind of happy-go-lucky tune for Tune of the Week.
