TOTW 1 Dec 2017 Old Christmas Morning
This archaic tune has more than one related version, but this week's old-time Tune of the Week for 12/1/17 focuses on West Virginian fiddler French Carpenter (1905 -1965). I now know why January 6 is also celebrated as Christmas, or "Old Christmas," as the English calendar was changed in 1752 and 12 days were left out, bringing December 25th to January 6th. Learn something new every day....

Thanks, Rick. Sometimes the tough part is listening to the source recording when it's not always consistent. Thank goodness for the slowdowner!
