Like a take-off of Noam PikelnyÕs tribute to Kenny Baker (ÒNoam plays Kenny Baker plays Bill MonroeÓ), McCanless gives this fiddle CD the sub-title ÒAl McCanless plays Alan Jabbour plays Henry ReedÓ. Mr. McCanlessÑfrom North CarolinaÑ was one of the ÒoriginalsÓ in the Bluegrass field in a career that goes back to the mid 1960sÑ the days of the New Deal String Band and Carlton HaneyÕs earliest festivals. On this CD he showcases old time tunes rather than BluegrassÑ some of the 17 tunes include KITCHEN GIRL, BETSY LYKENS, SALLY IN THE GARDEN, GLORY IN THE MEETINGHOUSE, HOG EYED MAN, etc.
