Bill Monroe sang this one. It's the perkiest Christmas song I've heard.

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.

TOTW 08/05/2022 -  Chuck A Luck

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

Written in 1857, but recorded by the Carter Family in the late 1920's. Definitely a favorite jam song for Kit and I, "Plinky and Plunky."

A quick take on an old favorite song. Instead of out of open G, I worked it out of open C -- gCGCE, a tuning I've only used a few times.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 1-1-16, this version comes from Marcus Martin (1881 - 1974), North Carolina fiddler, though the town he sings of is in Tennessee. He said that his father, Rowan Martin, played this tune.

The tuning some call SRB or Cumberland Gap (fDGCD) is fun to play around with, as in this tune. It gave me the feel of three-finger rolls with clawhammer.

This old-time Tune of the Week, 3/31/17, came from the playing of Kentucky fiddler Manon Campbell who learned it from his aunt. The story is that a boat was caught in a slow whirlpool at Coal Harbor Bend and didn't realize that the dance tune they kept hearing, thinking they were floating downriver, was from the same gathering at the house by the river. My arrangement comes from fiddler Rhys Jones of the group Bigfoot.

For the old-time Tune of the Week. I learned this listening to Don Borchelt and Ed Britt. Instead of using double D tuning for the key of D, I'm in open G and tuned down the 5th string to an A note. That may be a little quirky I suppose, but sounds okay to me and avoids the dissonance when playing the open G chord in the second measure.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, this version comes from Illinois fiddler Jim Reed on the Dear Old Illinois CD set, ready to be re-released soon. Cora Dye was the name of a musician who taught Mr. Reed, but the original name may have been Old Sage Friend. See the TOTW: http://www.banjohangout.org/topic/305004. Hope you enjoy this delicate first effort to learn the tune.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 10/17/14, as played by Clyde Davenport. Learning this tune has got me looking at an old Christmas present I got one year called Homemade Instruments by Dallas Cline. Wouldn't that be a fun one to make!

Many of us know a Cousin Sally Brown with an evocative modal tuning. This is a different melody. The source is Gaither Carlton, to me known as the father-in-law of the more famous Doc Watson. My arrangements here come from Gaither, Doc, and another banjo player of the region, Calvin Cole. I'm playing on the slower side. Check out the TOTW to hear more, especially Paul Brown.

At a music camp dance several years ago, Kit and I heard Heidi Claire fiddling this as the traditional last song of a dance. We just had to learn it and found a notated source by Elena Corey when she was active in the California Bluegrass Association. Here's our banjo/mandolin duet.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 1/20/17, this is a favorite Texas waltz my husband, Kit, and I have enjoyed. Don Borchelt does a great job covering its history if you check it out, and has lots of examples, including two superb videos of his own.

An original tune for Tune of the Week, 10/23/20, by a musician to admire, fiddler Joe Herrmann. He says the title came from an incident of coyotes marauding his wife's sheep, killing four and injuring one. Employing a sheepdog in the pasture later solved the problem, but the coyotes still howled. However, they also stayed away. I'm in sawmill tuning, an appropriate choice for this title.
