Tune : Cold Frosty Morning/Cuckoo's Nest/Cluck Old Hen

These two tunes "Cold Frosty Morning/Cluck Old Hen" work together, both in A Dorian, though from different traditions. If you sandwich "Cuckoo's Nest" in between them it'll vary the tonality a bit. Miriam Wyman and Matt Catalano, Gordon's nephew from Ohio, taught us "Cold Frosty Morning". "Cuckoo's Nest" we got from our student, Cynthia McDermott while directing the FSU Irish Ensemble, and "Cluck Old Hen" Jane learned 'cause she thought it'd be an easy one for beginning fiddle students.

Tune : Big Scioty/Sandy River Belle

The first tune in this medley we learned from Miriam Wyman and Matt Catalano, Gordon's nephew. As we learned "Big Scioty" from Matt we play it differently from the local Tallahassee players.  There are various versions of "Sandy River Belle", a West Virginian tune. But, this is the version Gordon Scott plays and it's catchier than some of the other versions Jane has found.

We're going to be posting a number of videos from our performances at the Old-time Weekend at Stephen Foster State Park. Here is our first offering, Shady Grove.
