Spencer Moore - Chilhowie, VA - Oct 30, 2006

Here are some field recordings that I made of Spencer Moore on October 30, 2006. This is my debut on my own blog here. I'm playing the fiddle on these recordings and my friend, Martha Spencer, of Whitetop, VA is playing the banjo. We felt like Spencer was really picking and singing well this day. Hope that all of you enjoy his music.

  1. Congratulations on your debut. Nice fiddlin'. You should have posted a picture of the three of you together. This is a good fun recording. Thanks.

  2. Really great stuff, this is as true as music gets.
    All three of you worked together and produced a great sound.
    Now, get back in the car and do some more field trips.

  4. This is real beautiful stuff. Mind telling us a little more about the recording setup you used? Thanks for gifting us with these.

  5. Spencer says he has Murder of the Lawson Family on a record, what record? Did he still have his record collection? Thanks for this wonderful recording! I'd love to hear some stories about this trip if you'd be so kind.
