Kentucky fiddler Nikos Pappas played Hell and Scissors during the 2011 J.P. Fraley Festival. You'll hear Nikos describing what the name of the tune means and how old time fiddlers put tones between the sharps and flats to do the quarter tones or "wild notes" in this tune. Listen closely to the trills.

During the Sept. 5-8,2012 J.P. Fraley Festival, two Cowan Creek students (young Joseph Cobb and considerably older Pat (a.k.a. hummyfan--who won't reveal her age) played in a jam session with a "DREAM TEAM" made up of wonderful old-time Kentucky fiddlers & teachers: John Harrod, Jessie Wells, Bobby Taylor, Bob Buckingham, Jim McCown---and a Missouri resident, fiddler Bill Ray. As you listen to us zipping through "Ladies on a Steamboat," notice the middle part of the tune when the teachers dropped out of the tune leaving the students to play the tune through once ( AABB) before jumping back in. That festival was the best music festival ever! I'd like to thank the organizers and the staff at Carter Caves State Park (Olive Hill, KY) for making it so special.
