  • $8.00


This music—19 tunes worth of fine fiddling—was pretty much lost on a cassette-only release when it originally came out in 1981. We’re glad to see it put out again, this time on compact disc, by Mr. Walden himself. Walden is a long time student & preserver of mid-western fiddle music, having learned from such legends as R.P. Christeson, Bob Walters and Cyril Stinnett. But Mr. Walden is not just an archivist, he is a very good fiddler, playing an impressive group of tunes in the sprightly style than it distinctly Missourian (for another great sampling of this fiddle style, see COUNTY-2739 “3 Fiddlers From The Show Me State” that includes Stinnett, Lyman Enloe & Casey Jones.). Some of the really neat tunes here are ROSEBUD HORNPIPE, SPOTTED PONY, JEFF CITY, NED KENDALL HORNPIPE, OPERA REEL and ZACK WHEAT’S PIECE. While almost all the numbers are obscure pieces, they certainly make for some fine listening for fiddle fans. There is solid and appropriate guitar and piano accompaniment by Dennis and Emily Buckhannon. For the waltz fan there are 5 such tunes here, like MOTHER’S WALTZ, BILL POWELL’S WALTZ and CASEY’S OLD TIME WALTZ.
