Welcome to Get Up in the Cool: Old Time Music with Cameron DeWhitt and Friends! Many of you already know this week’s friends, because they’re some of Old Time’s most active performers, educators and recording artists: Erynn Marshall and Carl Jones. We met at the Portland Old Time Music Gathering a couple months ago, and ever since, I’ve been thinking a lot about they said in our interview, both verbally, and musically. 

Tunes we’ll play:
Blackie and Emma / Rolling in the Dust
Ain’t It Crazy How Things Don’t Go
Halloween Wedding March
Pretty Little Widder
Kingdom Come
Bonus Track: Eadle Alley

Jordan Rast (Growing Up Old Time) by Cameron DeWhitt

Welcome to Get Up in the Cool: Old Time Music with Cameron DeWhitt and Friends! This week’s friend is fiddler and songwriter Jordan Rast. Jordan grew up going to clifftop, and he shared a lot of fun stories that I vicariously enjoyed. Most people sort of stumble upon or wander into Old Time Music, but Jordan was raised on the stuff. It’s always interesting, hearing people like Jordan talk about this music; he’s not a fanatic, like most folks who find Old Time as adults, like me. To Jordan, it’s just sort of a given, more akin to going home to visit your folks. He has an appreciation for the tradition that’s had time to settle, but the  Old Time is rooted a lot deeper in him than it is in most folks.
