  • $13.50


A superb collection of 19 well selected old-time tunes played beautifully in clawhammer style by Flesher, otherwise known as Dr. Horsehair. Flesher, a student of the various old-time and minstrel styles, draws his tunes from sources like Wade Ward and Fred Cockerham as well as old-time recording artists Uncle Dave Macon and Dr. Humphrey Bate, and adds some of his own tunes as well. He sings on a few numbers, and utilizes the guitar backing of Troy Weldon on 5 or 6 cuts.
