Learning from Kentucky fiddler J.P. Fraley is always a treat. His style is always flowing and cheerful. J.P. says he thinks he learned Sail Away Ladies from his father, Richard, though at first he cited Ed Haley, the famous blind fiddler. As a child, J.P. would listen to Ed for hours on the street corner of Ashland while his father was on business. This version doesn't resemble any other Sail Away Ladies I've heard.

You know I just wonder.. Singing aling in my head with the versus to this variation makes me invision a ball with the ladies in gowns and men in waistcoat bowing and politely stepping around the floor in unison and the ladies sailing away to tge next partner. Very victorian sound. I like this version. Different.
