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
Bonus Track: Johnny Don’t Come Home Drunk
