VOLUME 2

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.

Eulalie Cleveland Heights, Ohio

Eulalie (pronounce it "YOU-la-lee")
True blue. Guaranteed 100% irony-free.

Hauntingly stark, sweetly sentimental, or just plain fun,
these old songs tell the stories of people's lives.
Ron & Donna treat these treasures with the love and respect of honest, straightforward arrangements inspired by the old masters of parlor, dance hall, and backwoods.
