Hoe-Downs Hornpipes & Hokum
Enjoy this program of Charlie Walden's old-time fiddling with traditional piano accompaniment provided by Patt Plunkett. Tunes from Missouri and the Midwest. REVIEW: County Sales Newlsetter #300 July - 2009 Here is another compact dies reissue of a 1994 cassette from the old Marimac label. Charlie Walden is an excellent fiddler from Missouri who had another recent CD listed in our last newsletter (CWM-002, $ 13.50). This one is a bit different as it achieves more of a New England sound, with piano as a second instrument, played very nicely by Ms. Patt Plunkett. There are a few "jig" type tunes like Little Burnt Potato, but most of the tunes are quite recognizable to fans of rural music with well-played versions of Paddy on the Railroad, Old Hen Cackle, Forked Deer, Lady of the Lake, Martha Campbell, etc. There are 21 tunes in all. $ 13.50 www.countysales.com.
