Nice clawhammer, clear and old-timey. Is this a newer song?

Thanks for the comment. I have no Idea of the age of the songI belive it is very old. I learned it from Charlie Acuffs fiddling an Old-time fiddle player from my area. He is in his 90s now and learned fiddle from his grandfather. He plays a bunch of cool tunes I haven't heard any other people play! If you haven't heard of Him you should look him up on you tube there is a video of him playing this tune at the Meuseum of Appalachia in 93.

Funny, but yesterday our friend just loaned us a video called Appalachian Fiddling Today (1995), which has him on the cover! Linda said she picked with him on the porch at the museum where she used to work. He's a cousin of Roy Acuff. He plays Two O'clock, Cacklin Hen, Bob Taylor's March, Going to Chatanooga, and Turkey Buzzard. Also, 7 more fiddlers are in this collection, including John Hartford accompanied by Mike Compton on mandolin (our favorite!). Now I really can't wait to watch it this week. You must live in the best part of the country!

Sounds like a cool Video I need to try to find a copy! I like John Hartford and Mike Compton also! I Do Love where I live there is lots of great musicians mostly Bluegrass now. Many of the great Old-time musicians died before my time and even the people who are older now are from the Generation when they were moving away from the older styles thats why Charlie Acuff is so important because He is one of few musicians left who continued to play the Old-time Fiddle music in the area.
