This may be old news, but I just found it recently. I was impressed with the content and thought I would past along the information and the link to the Oldtime Central channel on youtube. I don't usually subscribe, but I did on this one.



I haven't explored everything on the channel, but I am think I'm going to enjoy going through it. Looks like everything from performances to teaching tunes, and workshops.  Good material.



It started with watching a video about "oldtime bow technique" by Craig Judelman. Excellent video with demonstrations that includes shuffles (patterns). Believe it or not, I'm not opposed to learning them - but I have my opinions about how much effort I need to apply to the technique apart from the tunes I learn,



Enjoy.

Great site. Went up a bit ago, while you were busy with life and whatnot. I'll be looking at that bowing installment.



If you are unfamiliar with this site, you're welcome smiley check out episode 91 for an hour of good Horse Flies influenced play along jams. That site alone will give you days of fun.

Thanks Billy. I notice he made a tribute show to Mac Benford, which I plan to listen to later today.
Also, Walt and Clare have a nice YouTube series (daily I think) called "Happy Hour!" where they play brief versions of a lot of good tunes.

Thanks.



Richie Stearns and his wife (Jeannie?) were here in Memphis last year for a house concert. Great  duo, great music, great folks. I got to talking with him afterwards and then re-membered that I saw him play with a few friends in Alaska  at the Ancorage Folk Festival - as the "Improbabillies".  They were great too. i learned their version of Icy Mountain (Scotty Meyer on fiddle). 



Richie also played with Donna The Buffalo.



I'll have fun with this site too.

I've been following Happy Hour! since their third installment. It remind me of my Clifftop friends who are friends with Walt and Claire. Have played several of those tunes with them, and a few of them with Walt and Claire.



The Mac tribute is a good show.
