VOLUME 2
This is the promised follow-up to Volume 1, available here:
eulalie.bandcamp.com/album/tunes-from-the-heart-of-the-valley-volume-1

Traditional fiddle tunes expertly played with wild abandon by two good friends.

The music here is from a recording made by Jon & Ron in 1983. As was the case with many repertoire tapes, it was copied and re-copied again and again, eventually sounding as scratchy as any old field recording. We have decided to release the versions from the original master tape as a tribute to Jon, who passed away far too soon on June 15, 2015.

For a bit of background on the recording, read our blog posts:

At the time, Jon was still playing the old fiddle given to him by his step-father, which had the bridge propped up with a matchstick when I met him. Needless to say, I made him a new bridge. I was playing an 1890s WA Cole banjo and a 1943 Gretsch archtop guitar.
