SKU: RAINS-41923-CD
Weight: 0.33 LBS


Product Description

The subtitle of this album is “Weird Tunes Of Old Texas”, but we wouldn’t call them “weird” by any means: they are just good tunes very well played. Don’t expect to hear any examples of the later “Texas Contest Style” (a la Major Franklin or Benny Thomasson), but rather some rare and unusual tunes that one might hear in various other parts of the rural South. There are 22 tunes here, (most well over 3 minutes) with excellent notes as well as sources for each piece plus fiddle tunings. Howard Rains does the lead fiddle here, with Tricia Spencer supplying the 2nd fiddle or guitar as called for. This album is a gem for any player or lover of good old-time fiddling! RABBIT HASH, WATERLOO, CHICKEN REEL, COPPER SPRINGS BLUES, LOST GIRL, WOLVES IN THE WOODS, KITTY CRANKIE, DUCK CREEK, ETC.
