I'm super excited. Just received a copy of John Hartford's Old Time Fiddling: Trying to Teach My Hands to Do What I Hear in My Head.
I read about this DVD from someone on the Bluegrass Daddy Forum, and knew I just had to watch it.
If you are not familiar with him, John Hartford (December 30, 1937 – June 4, 2001) was an American folk, country, and bluegrass composer and musician known for his mastery of the fiddle and banjo, as well as for his witty lyrics, unique vocal style.
After I have a chance to watch it, I'll follow up with a review.
LOL Maybe that big hat was an outward expression of the big life he led. He was quite a person/musician. I wrote a piece on him this morning for my blog: Trying to Teach My Hands to Do What I Hear in My Head
