about

A collection of twenty four traditional Old-Time fiddle tunes
from the Southern Appalachian Mountains, Masterfully
rendered on a mountain dulcimer.
The majority of these tunes were learned through osmosis from playing them with old time fiddlers over a number of years. Most notable of these fiddler's is Bruce Greene of Yancey County, North Carolina. Bruce's older generational style of playing music and seemingly endless repertoire of tunes has had a profound influence on how I hear and play old time music.
On the mountain dulcimer, the older style rhythms help the melody ring clear.
This allows the beauty of a tune to speak for itself, reflecting sounds of a bygone era.
Most of the tunes on this recording are played on a three string cherry and spruce dulcimer from Tad Wright Woodworks in Horseshoe, North Carolina.
"Bound to Have a Little Fun", "Happy Hollow", "Hog Eyed Man" and "Windham" are played on a four equal distant string cherry and spruce dulcimer from Tad Wright.
"Hopping John" and "Long Time Traveling" are played on an oak prototype fretless dulcimer from David McKinney of Modern Mountain Dulcimer in Batesville, Arkansas.
