Get Up in the Cool features conversations and musical collaborations with some of Old Time music's heaviest hitters, like Ken Perlman, Adam Hurt, Spencer & Rains, and Jake Blount. As an interviewer, Cameron balances an effusive curiosity for the potential of traditional music with a dogged respect for its origins. Serving as audience surrogate, Cameron asks illuminating questions to Old Time's best and brightest while telling the larger story of the tradition's modern era.
 
Inside the Banjoverse connects with the unique journeys of music’s most celebrated roots artists - delving into the thoughts, emotions and experiences that drive and inspire them to art and to greatness. Hosted by We Banjo 3’s Enda Scahill––Ireland’s four-time banjo champion and a self-confessed technophobe and recovering perfectionist–– Enda uses his musical experience (he coined the term banjo-dysmorphia “what I think I’m playing, you might be hearing differently?”), candor (I’m in a band ...

This is a fun little tune, happily re-discovered by Uncle Dave Sturgill years ago after he remembered it as a boy in Piney Creek, North Carolina, then heard it no more until it re-surfaced with an old fiddler in Seattle, Washington. Our TOTW presenter, Andy Alexis, tells us it was a favorite song of his predecessor Piney Creek Weasels banjo player,…

Our Tune of the Week doesn't have the familiar sound of a fiddle tune, and indeed, it was written by a mandolinist, John Goodin, of the group Contratopia, who sadly passed away last year. To get his notes I reverted to cello banjo. I understood the banjo player of the group played Too Many Goats with a capo on the seventh fret -- not me. Now that w…

Known by other titles, this arrangement comes from the legendary WV fiddler Ed Haley. I played it on a short-scale Gold Tone Plucky travel banjo, ending up in the key of F and on a short-scale Doc's Banjo in the key of C --just a fun diversion to hear the difference. To play with a fiddler you'd need it in the key of D. Listen to Stephen Rapp with …

Having heard Doc Watson's version, I was familiar with Stone's Rag. But only having Vernon Spencer's version from the Field Recorders Collections, I used that one for a clawhammer arrangement. Usually in the key of C, I tuned on the cello banjo to what is equivalent to open G tuning on a regular banjo. It was easier and more fun to do the runs in t…
