This week we honor a woman fiddler for Women's History Month with a great tune that is not played very much: Over the Stump and Back Again. It comes from the playing of Sarah Gray Armstrong (18 March 1883 - 12 August 1957) of Westmoreland Co., PA.

Read the full history at the YouTube link below.

Subscribe to my YouTube channel and Stay Tuned for the next Old-Time TOTW, a different tune airing each Sunday morning.

Next week we will feature another woman fiddler for Women's History Month..see you then!

Over the Stump and Back Again

Another enyoyable post Paul. I linked this to the Samual Bayard Group here on FHO.

This is one of the hand full of Hill Country Tunes I picked up. Would you believe our Missoula Library had a copy, since disappeared. I made a copy some 25 years ago and shared with pals. Of course it’s posted on the web now.

Thanks, Steve, it's a fun one,  and I'm surprised is not played more.

Thanks for doing these videos, Paul. I've gotten a lot out of some of the tune histories you've given. I'll probably learn this one.
