Old-Time Kentucky Fiddle Tunes
Old-Time Kentucky Fiddle
" For years fiddlers and folklorists have prized the old-time fiddle tunes from Kentucky. Many of the most outstanding country music artists hail from the state, including Bill Monroe, widely regarded as the founder of bluegrass music. Even Aaron Copland lifted, note-for-note, a Kentucky fiddler's performance of "Bonaparte's Retreat" for the "Hoedown" section of his ballet Rodeo. That tune and nearly 200 others are transcribed here, most for the first time. They are taken from recordings of Kentucky fiddlers, many of whom were born before 1900, practitioners of a style of playing now extremely rare. Jeff Todd Titon places the tunes in their historical context, provides biographical sketches of the performers, and offers suggestions for contemporary fiddlers who want to use the book for performance. A compact disc of recordings is also included.

John Hartford's Mammoth Collection Of Fiddle Tunes
John Hartford's Mammoth Collection Of Fiddle
There is a brand new, full-color book exploring the creative mind of the late John Hartford. StuffWorks Press, Inc. has published John Hartford s Mammoth Collection of Fiddle Tunes, a sizable anthology containing 176 of his original compositions. Most of these tunes are previously unpublished and unrecorded, taken from Hartford s personal music journals. Best known for writing the Glen Campbell classic Gentle on My Mind, and launching Newgrass music with his landmark album Aereo-Plain, Hartford was a prolific songwriter and composer. A central figure in the Nashville acoustic community, he championed old-time music with an emphasis on the fiddle, amassing a sizable archive of research before his passing in 2001. Compiled and narrated by fiddler Matt Combs, John s daughter Katie Harford Hogue, and musicologist Greg Reish, the book sheds light on Hartford s creative process through original tune compositions, his own reflections on the fiddle, and interviews with family and fellow musicians, including Marty Stuart, Sam Bush, Norman & Nancy Blake, and Mike Compton. Tune titles range from the familiar Ohio River Rag, Delta Queen Waltz, and a twin-fiddle arrangement for Gentle On My Mind ; to the sentimental, even whimsical Howdy s Uncle Bob, Saint Louis Waltz, Gallatin Road Breakdow...
