  • $6.00


A nice collection of 26 tunes taken from field recordings of 8 West Virginia fiddlers including Woody Simmons, Boyd Phillips, Murrell Hamrick, Charley Taylor and others, recorded between 1994-1997. A couple of the pieces are unaccompanied, but most include a guitar backing. Quality of the playing varies greatly from pretty rough to very nice (Phillips, Simmons, and Jimmy Triplett are the most proficient and interesting here). Tunes include JIMMY JOHNSON, MAPLE SUGAR, GREASY STRING, SMITH'S REEL, DONE GONE, PUNCHEON FLOOR, etc.
