Genre: Old Time / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time
If anyone heard a loud buzzing coming from their beehives last night at midnight, or noticed their cows kneeling, it's because on the eve of Old Christmas (Christmas as traditionally celebrated in many parts of Appalachia on January 6th) animals traditionally did that sort of thing. I've uploaded a quick iPhone recording of Old Christmas played by yours truly but from the playing of Boyd Asher of Kentucky, Happy Old Christmas! Looking forward to the Eighth of January now...

. . . and a Happy Old Christmas to you, Hilarie; a very neat tune, indeed.

Nice tune, Hilarie. I'm going to try it tomorrow. It has some nice notation!
