Across the Blue Ridge #79- Fourth of July, and some good-time listening

4:00pm Jun 30, 2017
A powerful and haunting rendition of “Washington’s March” performed by the late West Virginia fiddler Edden Hammons features on the Fourth of July segment in this Across the Blue Ridge episode.
Paul Brown

This Fourth of July week show explores the confluence of American and British sounds of the American Revolution in the contemporary U.S. We have a segment treating us to several guises of a fiddle tune memorializing George Washington -- and African-American tunes and songs on fife and drum in the 20th Century south.  One of those tunes also shows up as a fiddle tune and song throughout the south.  Plus … some great good-time listening with love songs, a bit of blues, and fiddle tunes old and new in traditional mountain style and bluegrass.
