Aaron Olwell (Juggling Traditions) / by Cameron DeWhitt

Welcome to Get Up in the Cool: Old Time Music with Cameron DeWhitt and Friends. This week’s friend is Aaron Olwell! We recorded in Charlottesville, Virginia on my recent trip South. Aaron is a fantastic fiddler and clarinetist, and I’m sure he plays lots of other things too. In fact, I think we met in a jam at my first Clifftop, and he was flatfooting while playing a double slide whistle. That was years ago, and it was the middle of the night, but I’m pretty sure that was Aaron. Anyway, there’s no antics in today’s interview, just some neat tunes of Aaron’s choosing, some hot fiddling, some ambitious banjo playing, a very unique cumberland gap, and a little chat about what makes Aaron tick. 

Tunes we’ll play:
Bumblebee in a Jug
Lost Girl
Knoxville Rag
Cumberland Gap
Magnolia One-Step
Bonus Track: Grey Eagle
