One of 2 C Grey Eagles from N. C. fiddler Manco Sneed. This is a low-res file from a house party. Other musicians must remain unnamed, but that's me picking the banjo.

Must have been quite a house party if the other musicians must remain unnamed. Was there much damage?

Great stuff, thanks for posting.

PS, I linked your posting to the RTP Players Group. Hope you don't mind. I think it's safe enough.

If you're curious, email me I'd be happy to list personnel. Just didn't want to publicly post music I recorded so carelessly & in mp3 format. As many of you know, it's pretty difficult to make a decent recording when you're also playing!

Thank you Gail, but I was just kidding around.

You wouldn't know Mick Ayres from Florida would you? He's in SC now and is mainly responsible for my interest in old-time music and starting to play the banjo. He says he remembers seeing you with the Bucksnort Barndance String Band in FL.

This about the best thing ever!
Who's the fiddler?

Joseph Decosimo. He has a new Cd, Sequatchie, that's full of lesser known Tennessee fiddle tunes. Luke Richardson, a great clawhammer-er, who learned from Adam Hurt, is the main banjo player & I play on 5 cuts. Karen Heil, from San Francisco, played excellent guitar.

Cello was an important part of the old TN stringband sound. Joseph's wife Kasey is playing cello here & also on Hy Patillion on the Sequatchie recording. The most recent Old-Time Herald has an article on cello in o-t music by Paul Wells, who taught at Middle Tn State for many years.
