I thought this popular American Old Time tune should be on the Session database. There are many variations in the way it is played. The version I have submitted is a hybrid. The ‘A’ music is a transcription from the playing of Kate Lissauer. The ‘B’ section is as played by Jere Canote and Bo Bradham because I like the way it sounds with a liberal application of Georgia bowing.
I hope people will add their versions.
Cant say that Ive ever heard it. What oldtime tradition is this tune from?
I had heard this before, the midi just wasn’t ringing the bells til I listened to this recording:
From the digital appalachia collection.
There is a lot of information about the tune here:
It seems it is not a common or popular tune at all in oldtime fiddle music, but was mainly known around the KY, WV, OH area.
It’s not one that really tickles my fancy, but I admit that it is a nice tune.
Heartstrings Quartet version
The beautiful version which Heartstrings Quartet play is fast but ingeniously simple enough for community-based folk musicians; Heartstrings Quartet follow it with "Gold Rush"
