Genre: Folk / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time

I composed this piece in memory of my friend, journalist and clawhammer virtuoso Rick Abrams, who passed away in 1997. The first two parts are written in the modal style of a klezmer freilach or bulgar, with the third part concluding in the old-timey style that Rick was such a master of. Annette Brodovsky is on fiddle, Felipe Ferraz on guitar, me on banjo. This track is found on our "And I in the Uttermost West" CD.
