My first solo fiddle CD "Big Fancy" is officially available!

Sunday, November 15, 2015

 

I’m so excited to announce that my debut solo CD “Big Fancy” is now available. This project has been percolating for a long time and, to my astonishment, it’s finally done! Yay!

 

If you have any interest in a straight-up instrumental old-time album chock full of classics as well as some genuine rarities, then you’ll really dig it. There’s a ton of fiddle and quite a lot of banjo on the recording, in a variety of tunings. I drew my repertoire from Kentucky, West Virginia, Illinois, North Carolina, Louisiana, Georgia, Tennessee, and Ohio. 

 

For the fiddlers out there, I've recorded tunes from Edden Hammons, Tommy Jarrell, Mel Durham, John Lusk, Dennis McGee, Dave Bing, Will Adam, Alonzo Janes, Bruce Greene, Jim Bowles and more! Much of my bowing style draws from the patterns and bow rocking techniques found in the playing of Jarrell, Hammons, Sauber, Gellert, Wine, Molsky, Durham, Martin, Leftwich and a few others! I am a total bowing geek!!

 

For the banjo pickers out there, clawhammer, 2-finger and 3-finger styles are all represented! I recorded with banjos made by Jason Romero, Kevin Enoch, Bart Reiter, Bob Flesher and Jeff Menzies. Some of these banjos can also be heard on the Dan Gellert CD/DVD set that I produced and released earlier this year.

 

"Big Fancy" features 21 tracks and comes with a 24-page booklet that contains in-depth liner notes, photographs and artwork. Here’s the track listing:

 

-Uncle Tom and the Wolves

-Cripple Creek

-Going to the Free State

-Big Fancy

-Flannery’s Dream

-Kate’s Got a Wooden Leg

-Big Hoedown

-Over the Mountain

-Davy Come On Back and Act Like You Ought To

-Alonzo Janes

-Washington’s March

-Altamont

-Old Bunch of Keys

-Texas

-Kiss Me Quick, My Papa’s A-Comin’

-Jingle at the Window, Tidy-O

-Peter Francisco

-Spanish Fandango

-Happy Hollow & Jack’s Creek Ridge

-Boating Up Sandy

 

Check it out if you get a chance! We had a ton of fun making it and I'd love to hear what you think!

Made low/no budget moving pictures then music videos. Studied Asian religions and North Indian Classical music. Traveled with itinerant street magicians in India for many months. Witnessed the Indian Rope Trick. Became obsessed with fiddle and banjo. Became more obsessed. Started teaching. Visited, listened to and watched some awesome musicians over the last decade: Clyde Davenport, Benton Flippen, Mel Durham, Charlie Acuff, Lester McCumbers, Melvin Wine, Tom Sauber, Brad Leftwich, Greg Hooven, Joe Thompson, Will Keys, etc. Traveled to Burma, Thailand, Europe, Brazil, etc. Met a special lady from a desert.

The old-time music obsession takes over my life and all I do is play and teach wonderful students. The desert lady and I create Maya Scheherazade and Leela Saraswati. Now I help the girl spawn get obsessed with Old-Time too.
