Jake Blount (African American Fiddle Music) / by Cameron DeWhitt

Welcome to Episode 8 of Get Up in the Cool, Old Time Music with Cameron DeWhitt and Friends. This week I’m proud to present my interview and jam with Ethnomusicologist, Fiddler, Banjo player, and BFF Jake Blount. This week’s theme is African American Fiddling! Jake has access to private recordings Mike Seeger made of prominent black fiddlers; so he learned these rare tunes and now you can hear them! That’s right, this is another Get Up in the Cool exclusive!
