The Pyramids, Stonehenge…. Mark Twain’s Wall?  Join Stone E. Lonesome on his mysterious discovery of this most unusual structure deep in the middle of the Connecticut forest. Watch this short 2 minute Stoney Lonesome Production ™ here:
The accompanying soundtrack is a fiddle tune appropriately named “Woodland Whispers"” played by Al Murphy. Al learned this song from the late Iowa fiddle player, Otis McKray. AL Murphy, renowned Iowa fiddle player and musicologist, spent many years studying under a handful of Iowa and Missouri old time fiddle players and learned their tunes. The fiddle tunes he learned were never recorded, documented or written down. Were it not for Al’s laborious effort, they would have been lost forever. They can be found on Al’s record, “Hogs In The Cornfield” and will now live forever, to be passed on to others, in the true folk tradition.                A Stoney Lonesome Production™ and Thanks for watching!  For more Lonesome, stop by:

Al Murphy made a few long play records with Art Rosenbaum in the early 1970s.

That's a puzzler, right there. That woulda taken a long time to construct in the days of draft horses and oxen. Why indeed...
