For the old-time Tune of the Week, 5/30/14, from Kentucky fiddler Clyde Davenport, recorded by Jeff Titon and in his book "Old-Time Kentucky Fiddle Tunes." The timing in the A part feels like it has African-American influence--something I'd like to know more about. For tabbing the tune I used two measures of 4/4 timing followed by a measure of 2/2 timing.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 8/15/14, learned from BHO member ajisai's fiddling. She learned it from an old violin instruction book of the early 1900's. Without a historic recording to go by, this reminds me of the manner in which Turlough O'Carolan's tunes were learned and carried on. Someone notated them and published them and we're all better off for knowing his beautiful music.

Liquor Seller came from James Bryan's fiddling, but I discovered that Roscoe Parish of Virginia recorded it on both banjo and fiddle and assume he's the source. I chose Darling Corey because of its similar theme and the fact that I was looking for a tune with the mixolydian mode to go with Liquor Seller.

Often accompanying by some silly lyrics about Davy and gravy, here is just the instrumental as learned from 1928 recording by the Weems String Band. They only made two, yet many outstanding banjo players have recorded Davy and credited the family band.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 8/4/17, West Virginia fiddler Delbert Hughes (1905 -1982) recorded this one. It sounds like Davy is responding in the B part with his grievances, which he finds reasonable enough. I think this story ends where he comes back home....

This is one beautiful song when performed by Gillian and David. Kit and I were inspired when we saw them on the Chieftains Nashville Session and wanted to do this duet. Kit's mandolin on melody was so nice I chose to stay with harmony and hope it supports him.

This tune comes from the repertoire of Bluegrass boy Kenny Baker. He learned it from his father, Thaddeus, and said he only heard it played by his family. I used Garage Band to combine my Mac Traynham Whyte Laydie openback with my Gold Tone cello banjo.

Samuel Bayard collected this tune from fiddler and fifer Isaac Newton Morris. It's tune #45 in his book Dance to the Fiddle and March to the Fife. I learned it from the excellent recording by Mark Tamsula and Richard Withers in their CD Up in the Batten House. It's one of these tunes where the melody is embedded within some wandering passages. I'm playing in SRB tuning with tab in the BHO archive.

Listening to a David Grisman collection called Mandolin Extravaganza, this one caught my attention.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 1-28-17, I listened to an Illinois fiddler John Ray "Doc" Corn recording, made on his birthday in 1976. The tune was also recorded by Lynn Chirps Smith, a fiddler whose work I respect and enjoy. There's not much other information yet on this tune other than it had another title that isn't so nice.

Graham Townsend, Canadian winning dance fiddler and prolific tunester till his death in 1998, wrote this reel and played it rapidly and notes. I simplified the A part, but not as much the B part, and slowed it down here.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 12/2/16, from the playing of Virginia fiddler Taylor Kimble (1892 - 1979). I wouldn't know much at all about this kind of corn, so I'm sure this version won't "set your head on fire," as the lyrics said.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 11/12/17, Double File was recorded by Gaither Carlton. Anything that brings me closer to Doc Watson's family makes me hapy. I added a bit of cello banjo accompaniment.

From the fiddling of WV fiddler French Carpenter. I also heard Gerry Milnes play this, learned from Wilson Douglas' fiddling. It was a Tune of the Week a while back. I like the slide in the B part--it gives it a swing feel.

Comparing this song to another I came to record it with the tuning f#DADE. I remember Doc Watson's singing of it best.

Also known as Rose Conley and Rosin the Bow, the melody is so nice, but the lyrics aren't, so I'd rather just play the instrumental. It's a song we all seem to learn, but why a murder ballad -- ugh!
