Thread Name: Ken Burns's 'The Dust Bowl'
Subject: RE: Ken Burns's 'The Dust Bowl'
Just to highlight this beautiful tune...
Larry Unger's "Two Rivers" (not Jay Ungar, of Ashokan Farewell, in case you were understandably confused), as played by Eden Macadam-Somer on fiddle and Larry on guitar. (In this duo they are Notorious.)
Larry playing it on clawhammer banjo: clicky. A New England-y approach to clawhammer. Larry writes wonderful tunes on banjo and guitar that translate beautifully to fiddle or free reeds.
Ken Burns bought this one for the special on the US National Parks. So no credit here?
[Sure hope I'm not wrong about which tune that was!]
