Hog-Eyed Man, the duo of fiddler Jason Cade and multi-instrumentalist, augmented here by banjo player Tom Baker on most cuts, devote themselves to pre-WWII old-time music. There's no Highwoods influence here. Old World Music of the Southern Appalachians consists of 19 fiddle tunes lovingly rendered with a deep respect for tradition and a bit of their own interpretations. The sources, such as Marcus Martin, Ed Haley, John Salyer, and Manco Sneed, for the tunes suggest would an excellent album this is. Extensive liner notes put the music in context.
