K.C.Kartchner and Viola Ruth - Arizona Fiddling 1900 - 1950 Frontier fiddling 100 years ago

Saturday, January 25, 2014

I have been doing some research on Arizona fiddlers  K.C. Kartchner and Viola Ruth.... here is a text file that includes a lot of information about them

https://db.tt/3QNuBnuf

That will get you to a dropbox file that you can download.

I posted the same link in a posting on the Facebook page of the AOTFA and along with it on  the same posting, a dropbox link to a photocopy  of Viola Ruth's  1948  "Western Pioneer Folk Tunes"

I play a lot of Appalachian Old Time music and have been to a lot of camps and festivals such as Clifftop, Mt Airy, Mars Hill, Allegheny Echoes (where I took a class with Jake Krack), Ashokan (where I took classes with Jay Ungar and Rayna Gellert),Mars Hill (where I took classes with Emily Schaad and Mick Kinney), Maine Fiddle Camp (Ed Perlman, Eric Favreau and Farank Ferrel), Old Songs Festival (Pascal Gemme), Swannanoa, Galax, etc. But I also love old New England tunes, Quebecois fiddling, and all varieties of fiddling from before the days of radio and TV. I haave taught workshops on fiddling at the New England Folk Festival, Fiddle Hell, New England Fiddle Festival, andfor several fiddle clubs. Since I retired I have spent a lot of winter time in Arizona, and I have gotten interested in early Arizona fiddlers such as KC Kartchner and Viola Ruth. I have played at a lot of dances - quadrilles, contras, waltzes and couple dances.. It's all good.
