Hilarie Burhans (Queen of Burhania) by Cameron DeWhitt

Welcome to Get Up in the Cool: Old Time Music with Cameron DeWhitt and Friends! This week’s friend is clawhammer banjoist, restaurateur, and queen of Burhania, Hilarie Burhans. We recorded this episode at the Brandywine Revival Festival, and I’m really excited for you to hear it! Hilarie is one of my very favorite humans; she’s charming and generous and hilarious, and I think she’s responsible in no small part for the quality of the culture of Old Time Music, which is mostly why I play, so I feel a lot of gratitude and respect for her.

Oh, and Hilarie Burhans is badass at the banjo. She’s one of the best. Her rhythm is unstoppable, her tone is incredible, and the way she adapts fiddle melodies to the banjo, I think, makes her one of the musically wisest players in the old time community. You have to have a real insight into what makes a tune special to make it sing on the banjo the way Hilarie can.

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!

Bach Bui (Mack Blalock Tunes via James Bryan) by Cameron DeWhitt

Hello Friends! This is episode 5 of Get Up in the Cool, wherein one of my favorite people ever, Bach Bui, plays James Bryan playing Mack Blalock; I’ll let Bach explain the details. Suffice it to say, you probably haven’t heard these tunes, as they are mostly extinct in jams, and unavailable digitally. Enjoy!
