Matt Brown (Fiddler! Educator! Producer!) by Cameron DeWhitt

Welcome to Get Up in the Cool: Old Time Music with Cameron DeWhitt and Friends! This week’s friend is Matt Brown: old time fiddler, educator, and producer! I’m going to cut to the chase: I’m releasing this now because Matt Brown produced a wonderful new album called On Big Shoulders, and there’s a kickstarter!

Devin Forest-Hines (Easy to Hear, Hard to Play) by Cameron DeWhitt

Welcome to Get Up in the Cool: Old Time Music with Cameron DeWhitt and Friends! This week’s friend is Devin Forest-Hines, with special guest friend Amelia Baker on guitar. We recorded this in Portland before the Old Time Gathering, about a month and a half ago. Devin chose some really neat tunes for our jam, and I’m pretty sure I’ll keep some of them, especially his version of Shady Grove, which we play towards the end. That’s not clickbait-style rhetoric, I actually liked that tune the best out of all the tunes we played, it just happens to be second to last.

Tunes we’ll play:
Cotton Eyed Joe
Trouble on the Mind
Brad Walters
Laurel Lonesome
Shady Grove
I Don’t Love Nobody

John Lane (Missouri Fiddle Tunes) by Cameron DeWhitt

Welcome to Get Up in the Cool: Old Time Music with Cameron DeWhitt and Friends! This week’s guest is John Lane, and we’re going to play some Missouri tunes for you, and tell you which tunes you know and love have been Missouri tunes all along. You may be surprised! Some of you definitely won’t be, because you’re Old Time super nerds, and I love that about you. Never change. 

Anyway, this episode is very good. We recorded it in Spitzer Space Telescope’s apartment in Chicago while I was in town for the Midwest Sing and Stomp. His room’s part of an old repurposed dentists’ office, and the room at the end of the hall was an art gallery. The bathroom window opened up onto an ancient fire escape, and when Dan made us pancakes, he had to do it on an electric element. It was just about the most bohemian living situation I’d ever seen, and it was delightful. Dan just hung out in the corner while we jammed, and Chet, a contradance caller from knoxville, I think, sat at his desk and practiced calligraphy. I just wanted to set the scene, because there’s a fair amount of street noise in this episode, and I think it will be more enjoyable if you can picture our setting. 

Make sure to stick around after the interview to find out where to listen to John’s music and also hear some exciting news about Get Up in the Cool. Let’s get it started. Here’s my jam and chat with John Lane. Enjoy!

Tunes we’ll play:
Grand Picnic
Salty River Reel
Pride of America
Coming Up the Pike
Iberia Breakdown

Lucas Pasley (First Hand Tunes) by Cameron DeWhitt

Welcome to Get Up in the Cool: Old Time Music with Cameron DeWhitt and Friends! I’m really excited for you to hear my interview with this week’s friend, Lucas Pasley, because Lucas has a real, personal connection to this music, and it’s rare to interview someone who studied so close to the source. Also joining us is Kilby Spencer on guitar, who’s been on the show a few times before; he’s the one who set me up with a whole bunch of interviews, including this one, and hosted me when I came down to Crumpler, NC last spring. Thanks again, Kilby!

Make sure to stick around after the interview to hear about Lucas’ new album and find out how to support Get Up in the Cool and get access to exclusive bonus content. Here’s my jam and chat with Lucas Pasley; enjoy!

Libby Weitnauer (Live at Black Creek Fiddlers' Reunion) by Cameron DeWhitt

Welcome to Get Up in the Cool: Old Time Music with Cameron DeWhitt and Friends! This week’s friend is Libby Weitnauer! We recorded this interview in front of a live audience at Black Creek Fiddlers’ Reunion, and I’ve been really excited to share it, because Libby is a wonderful fiddler and she’s lovely to talk to. One of my favorite things is listening to classically trained violinists who fall in love with Old Time, because they take the same dedication and discipline necessary to play classical violin and apply it to accurately transmitting this old music. Some never quite make the transition and have trouble getting it, but others, like Libby, bring something really special to the tradition. 

Thanks again to Black Creek for hosting us and supporting Get Up in the Cool on Patreon! I’m going to get this show started. Stick around after the interview for details on how to support the show and maybe hear Libby and I play this week’s bonus track, Dull Chisel. 

Here’s my jam and chat with Libby Weitnauer. Enjoy!

Seth Swingle (Old Banjo Tunes in Rare Tunings) by Cameron DeWhitt

Welcome to Get Up in the Cool: Old Time Music with Cameron DeWhitt and Friends! This is a very special episode of Get Up in the Cool, because my guest is Seth Swingle. We recorded this interview at Clifftop last year, very late in the festival. Seth was actually my eighth recording that week, so when he said he wanted to showcase solo banjo music in weird tunings, I said, so you mean I don’t have to learn any tunes? I can just sit and listen to you??? I was very excited.

Tunes we’ll play
Shortenin’ Bread
Lost Gander
Buck Creek Gals
Grigsby’s Hornpipe
Whoop ‘Em Up Cindy

And who better to feature on Get Up in the Cool’s 50th episode than Tricia Spencer and Howard Rains, experts in the field of traditional Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas fiddle tunes, fantastic visual artists, and, perhaps, Old Time’s cutest couple.

Ethan Hawkins (If You're Not Having Fun, You're Not Doing it Right) by Cameron DeWhitt

Welcome to Get Up in the Cool, Old Time Music with Cameron DeWhitt and Friends. This week’s friend is one of my favorite flat-pickers, songwriters, and old time musicians, Ethan Hawkins. I met him at Mt. Airy a couple years ago, and immediately got a big ol’ crush on him. He’s a very good guitarist, with a dreamy voice, and he’s a very animated performer, so I’m really glad I got him on video. Oh, did I not mention that? Check out Get Up in the Cool's Facebook page and you'll find some videos from this episode.

Kilby Spencer (Old Time Hand-Me-Downs) by Cameron DeWhitt

Welcome to Get Up in the Cool: Old Time Music with Cameron DeWhitt and Friends! This week’s friend is Kilby Spencer, and he’s kind of my new favorite fiddler. I wasn’t able to fully enjoy his fiddling while playing with him, because I was really concentrated on trying keep up, and not make a fool out of myself. But I just finished editing our interview and jam, and my jaw was on the floor the whole time. Kilby’s awesome. And, the best part is, I didn’t even get a chance to be intimidated, because he’s one of the nicest, most hospitable people I’ve met in my travels. He let me crash at his house, threw a bunch of amazing musicians with awesome stories in front of my microphones, and fed me all the fried chicken I could eat. Five Stars, would do business again.
 
I don’t think it’s a coincidence that Kilby’s a kind and generous person and a fantastic fiddler. His story’s full of gratitude and humility; because he came to this music more honestly than most of us do, and I think that understanding of what he’s doing, why he’s doing it, and where it all came from, is apparent in his playing and living. I learned a lot playing with him, and I had blast. I’m so glad I got some of it on tape so you all could catch a glimpse. 
 
Stick around after the interview for details on how to hear more of Kilby’s music and how to support Get Up in the Cool and get access to exclusive bonus content. 

Tunes we’ll play:

Spencer Family and Friends (Living Links to the Source) by Cameron DeWhitt

Welcome to Get Up in the Cool: Old Time Music with Cameron DeWhitt and Friends. This episode features a lot of my new friends! Thornton, Emily and Kilby Spencer, Kelly Brieding and Debbie Bramer. Kilby Spencer reached out to me a while back with some recommendations for guests, so I crashed at his and Kelly’s place in Crumpler, North Carolina, and he lined up some amazing guests for me, including Shohei Tsutsumi, whose episode aired last week. 
 
Before my trip, I hadn’t heard a lot of this style of fiddling and banjo playing, so I was pretty blown away when we got started. I’m used to playing this nonspecific, northern, festival-style, so let’s just say I expended a lot effort trying to keep up with these folks. Unfortunately, because there were six of us playing in a living room, this episode was a little more difficult to mix than the average one-on-one session. You only really notice it on a couple songs were the vocals get a bit lost. I hope the energy of the jam makes up for it

Tunes we’ll play:
Sugar hill
Johnson boys
Lost Indian
Eighth of January
Stagger Lee
John Brown’s Dream

Shohei Tsutsumi (Old Time in Japan/Appalachian Studies) by Cameron DeWhitt

Welcome to Get Up in the Cool: Old Time music with Cameron DeWhitt and Friends! This week’s friend is Shohei Tsutsumi. He recently moved from Osaka, Japan, to Boone, North Carolina for an Appalachian Studies program at Appalachian State. We talk about what led him to do so, as well as the thriving Bluegrass and Old Time scene in Japan. Also, Dave Wood, the academic program director of Shohei’s program, joins us on guitar.

Chris Dalnodar (Ragtime Apologist) by Cameron DeWhitt

Welcome to Get Up in the Cool: Old Time Music with Cameron DeWhitt and Friends! This week’s friend is fiddler Chris Dalnodar, and he brought with him a very serious topic: people should learn to play rags at old time jams and not be afraid of flat keys. And, you guys, I think he makes a pretty compelling case.

Deb Justice (Hammered Dulcimer in Old Time Music) by Cameron DeWhitt

Hi friends! I hope you’re all ready to Get Up in the Cool, by which I mean, get transported to a magical fairy land because this week for episode 10 Deb Justice brought her hammered dulcimer. Deb has her PhD in ethnomusicology, so she’s real nerdy about this stuff, which, as you should know by now, is very welcome on this show! Also, she’s quite snarky, because she has to be; there’s a social cost to playing hammered dulcimer in the old time community, which I don’t understand, because it’s a captivating instrument, but I’ll let her explain that in more detail.

Stick around after the interview for details on how to support the show and get access to this week’s bonus track! Also, there is an accompanying video, so make sure to click on the link in the episode’s description and share it on Facebook!

Deb Justice, everybody. Here it comes.

Chris Dalnodar (Sarah Armstrong Tunes) by Cameron DeWhitt

Welcome to episode 9 of Get Up in the Cool, Old Time Music with Cameron DeWhitt, and Friends. I’m Cameron, and my featured friend this week is fiddler Chris Dalnodar. Seeing as we both live in Philadelphia and his was the first local episode of the show, Chris thought it would be nice to do some Pennsylvania, or more specifically, Pennsatucky tunes. All of the tunes in this episode were performed by Ms. Sarah Armstrong and transcribed by ethnomusicologist Samuel Bayard outside of Derry, Pennsylvania, in the fall of 1943. While the transcriptions are easy to find, these tunes aren’t as popular as they should be! So I hope that all you fiddlers out there will be inspired to add a little Pennsatucky to your repertoire so I can play these tunes with you.  

Stick around after the episode to learn how to get access to this week’s bonus track, “Over the Stump and Back Again.”
 

Chris Dalnodar, everybody!
