Rare Old Chestnuts

 

This is a collection of twenty-two interesting and unexpected versions of old favorite fiddle tunes, learned from the playing of numerous traditional fiddlers who were born as far back as the 1870’s. Don Pedi, mountain dulcimer, and Bruce Greene, fiddle, have been friends and musical partners for more than twenty years. Both have spent a good part of their lives working, playing music, and and living alongside old time country musicians in North Carolina, Tennessee, and Kentucky. They love the old fiddle tunes, rare or common, and are, in fact, becoming rare old chestnuts themselves.
