Leake County Twostep

Genre: Old Time / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time

From a wild late night Clifftop jam in 2002. Rich Hartness on fiddle, me on banjo, Josephine Davis on guitar, Karen Falkowski on bass, Jere Canote on banjo-uke(?), maybe a few others, too. (My banjo sounds more "thwacky" than it really did due to the "pumping" of the limiter in the MiniDisc recorder of the person who recorded the session and kindly gave me a copy.)

Hi Brendon,

We play this tune up in Port Townsend.  I think folks got it from a noted version in The Portland Collection.  I am wondering if you have a reference for a recording of this tune?  Thanks for any help.  Dave Thielk

Hi David,

I first learned this tune many years ago from a re-released 1930 recording of Freeny's Barn Dance Band (from Mississippi). I just located an MP3 of that recording on the web (it seems to be called "Leake County One Step" here, which may be the correct name): Freeny's Barn Dance Band - Leake County One Step.mp3

You look very familiar, probably from the many (30!) years I've been going to Fiddle Tunes - but I'm not sure if I knew you by name, though we may very well have played in the same session at one time or another!
