Genre: Old Time / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time
From the playing of Kentucky fiddler, Estill Bingham (1899 - 1990), this old-time Tune of the Week is a nice, but rare tune, learned from his father Noah Bingham. Bruce Green first recorded him and there's a nice photo of him if you have the Jeff Titon book called Old-Time Kentucky Fiddle Tunes. He died at age 91 in an accident while walking to work.

Thanks, Lew. Happy music, remembering the exuberance of work (as in fetching soap and skipping home)!
