I learned this tune off of the Traditional Fiddle Music of Kentucky, Vol 2., recording. I think its one of the prettiest melodies out there. Marie-Desneiges Stockland is backing me on guitar.

This version of Liza Jane I synthesized from the playing of Emma Lee Dickerson and Luther Strong. I also play this melody with a different feel in the key of A, cross tuned. Coon Dog is a great east Kentucky tune that I've put together from a bunch of players like Buddy Thomas, Alfred Bailey, and Roger Cooper

Jim Booker/Doc Roberts tune. I learned it from John Harrod and John Masters. Kelly Gilbert uses a high part in Em that I sometimes throw in for a 3rd strain. This version is just 2 strains. Shippingport was an island in the Ohio River at Louisville and was a French enclave until the mid 19th century. GDAE

Here's a tune I learned from Erskine Morris (1913-1997) from Douglastown, Quebec on the edge of the Gaspé coast. A neighbour of his told me that this tune was brought to the area by French players who had come down from the North Coast and would play this on his Dad's porch.
