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.

This tune is on the County Records "Echoes of the Ozarks" CD set. That's a collection of string band music from bands active in the 1920's from mostly Arkansas and Missouri - though one fiddler was from Oklahoma.

Anyhow, there are two different versions recorded there by two different bands - both under the title "Robinson County". One version's very much like this one. The other version has a different B part. I think fiddlepogo plays the other version.

Though Uncle Eck's thought to be - and was - a Texas fiddler, he was born in Northern Arkansas and when his family moved to Texas I think Robertson was already old enough to've heard a lot of fiddling.
