This is such a pretty tune. I first heard it off of Jayme Stone’s “Africa to Appalachia” album, played with Mansa Sissoko (kora) and Casey Driesen (fiddle). It’s a gorgeous interpretation, in that I feel they somehow manage to really get to the heart of what this tune is. It certainly is a favourite of mine, because in addition to its inherent quality, the Stone album was a gift from a close friend, and then a sweetheart taught it to me [but this is not cheating, I really do need to work on it as I’ve alsmot forgotten the B part] and finally, today, it was a suggestion from an accomplished player and friend. So hurray for Chinquapin Hunting!
