Like a take-off of Noam Pikelny's tribute to Kenny Baker ("Noam plays Kenny Baker plays Bill Monroe"), McCanless gives this fiddle CD the sub-title "Al McCanless plays Alan Jabbour plays Henry Reed". Mr. McCanless --from North Carolina -- was one of the "originals" in the Bluegrass field in a career that goes back to the mid 1960s -- the days of the New Deal String Band and Carlton Haney's earliest festivals. On this CD he showcases old time tunes rather than Bluegrass -- some of the 17 tunes include KITCHEN GIRL, BETSY LYKENS, SALLY IN THE GARDEN, GLORY IN THE MEETINGHOUSE, HOG EYED MAN, etc.
