Bill Stepp's "Ways of the World" in Cross Tuning:


Sunday

2:00-3:00PM

Location: R31

Instructor: MOLSKY[F]

Style: Oldtime

The source for modern versions of this tune is Magoffin County, Kentucky, fiddler William Hamilton Stepp (1875-1947),  recorded by Elizabeth and Alan Lomax for Library of Congress in 1937. BTW, Stepp was also the source for the version of "Bonaparte's Retreat" that Aaron Copeland used in "Hoedown" in his ballet Rodeo.
