Highlander's Farewell: From the fiddle playing of Emmett Lundy

Emmett Lundy 1864-1953

Here Riley Baugus and Debra Clifford of the Lonesome Sisters play an old tune from Emmett Lundy, (1864-1953) Grayson County Virginia Fiddler, near Galax VA. Born during the Civil War, Emmett learned tunes during the frontier era of American history, finally making rural recordings in 1925 at the age of 61 years old. 

Here Riley plays an old borrowed fiddle for the session, tuned to A modal, GDAE. Debra plays her vintage 1949 Gibson Southern Jumbo Guitar on this track for some old time southern fiddle music. For more great info on Emmett Lundy, visit this Old Time Fiddlers hall of Fame website.
