I picked up this good old tune from some old time fiddlers at a festival somewhere back in the mid 1980s.

Here's another old tune that I learned from Vernon Riddle of Spartanburg, SC back around 1984. Vernon learned this tune directly from Eck Robertson back in the late 1950s when Vernon spent a lot of time with Eck during Vernon's time in the Air Force in Texas. What is interesting is that I just noticed that somebody has uploaded what sounds like a field recording of Eck playing this tune in 1959 and it appears that Vernon passed it on to me pretty much true to the way Eck played it.

I learned this one jamming with some old time fiddlers at a festival around 1985.

My version of the East Tennesee Blues. One day I need to sit down and take the time to learn the part where it goes to the D chord correctly. This is how I learned it many years ago and I've never bothered to change it.

I learned this tune back around 1984 from Vernon Riddle of Spartanburg, SC. Vernon learned it directly from Eck Robertson back in the late 1950s when Vernon was in the Air Force in Texas. Eck got the tune from a friend of his who was in the Civil War with Robert E. Lee and wrote this tune.

Mike Jarboe, this is my scratchy and squeaky old version of Lowery's for you to listen to. Until I heard your version, I had not played this tune in years. I learned this back in the mid 1980s listening to some old timers at a festival, but don't remember the details about who or where. I know that I played it a few times jamming with a good hammered dulcimer player named Denise who worked for the SC Parks system back around 1985.

I learned this haunting sounding waltz back around 1985 from Vernon Riddle. He picked it up from some Texas fiddlers when he was in the Air Force in Texas back in the 1960s.

I learned this tune back around 1985. My version is loosely based on a version I heard on an old Tommy Jackson record.

Here's my old version of this old tune the way I learned it back around 1981 from Mr. Bo Norris of Ward, SC, complete with the jagged old bowing like he used when he played this tune. This is one of the first tunes that I ever learned, and I'm pretty much playing it the same old way I played it when I first learned it. Mr. Bo would be over 100 years old if her were still alive. He died back in the early 1980s not long after I learned a handful of tunes from him.
