LEE STRIPLING 'Hogs Picking Up Acorns'
Fine & interesting CD featuring the old-time fiddle of Lee Striping, the son of old-time fiddler Charlie Stripling who recorded during the "Golden Age" of commercial old-time music. Lee performs many tunes that he learned from his dad as well as several Western-Swing & pop tunes that he picked up in the 1930s & 1940s. Joining Lee on this album are: W.B. Reid on guitar & vocals, Tony Mates on bass, Glenn Dudley on plectrum banjo and old-time fiddler & scholar, Kerry Blech, on mandolin (Blech also wrote the fine notes accompanying the CD). 33 Tunes including: RYE STRAW, WANG WANG BLUES, WHISKERS, POSSUM HOLLOW, WOLVES A-HOWLING, HEEL FLY, PALLET ON THE FLOOR, CALIFORNIA BLUES, DOWN ON THE L & N, etc.
