I love chicken tunes! I learned this from the playing of Clark Kessinger. I'm on fiddle with my friend Pete Anick on guitar.

Liked this one as well - probably done "cleaner" that Kessinger did it.  BTW, that's meant to be a compliment... (;-))

Not enough people, in my opinion, appreciate Kessinger's playing.  I've never really understood why this is.  Thankfully though he's still appreciated in his native state and was widely appreciated - and imitated - throughout the Mid West and Texas.

I firmly hold to the believe that the true sign of a master  of old time fiddle or banjo is the ability to make the instrument cluck like a chicken.   I fear this is a fast disappearing talent.  You have struck a blow for chicken pickers everywhere.  Great fiddling.

That certainly would classify as a "Chicken Tune"! Great fiddlin'!
