Old Time Entry for Arkansas Encyclopedia

Tuesday, July 28, 2009 @9:35:23 AM

I have recently been asked to compose an entry on Old Time Music for the Arkansas Encyclopedia.   In an effort to produce valid composition, I have begun researching the topic.  The further I delve into the subject, the more I realize my ignorance on the topic!  I once believed I had some idea of the subject, however, upon discussions with Clarke Beuhling, I am now in a position to further pursue information on the subject.  

Clarke's extensive research on the classical banjo is priceless to the old time community.  Clarke is known worldwide among classical banjo circles as well as old time banjo circles.  Currently playing with The Old 78's and occasionally with his own Skirtlifters, Clarke performs on a regular basis nationally as well.  His knowledge on the subject of old time banjo is well known.  His assistance in my research is highly valued.

You can see why my eyes have been opened, if you will, concerning old time music in Arkansas!

That said, I am currently on the prowl for certain persons whose knowledge on old time music is unprecedented.  I am extremely excited about meeting with others in the old time community to discuss with them the brilliant beauty and flagrant filth of our blatantly simple yet profoundly complete heritage.  Stay tuned for more at Fiddlin' Arkansas!
