I think the fiddle tune "Citico," a fast dance tune, is named after a Citico Creek and a region in nearby Tennessee that borders, NC.
If anyone has info about "Citico," please post.
Also today I found an old version of "Joe Turner Blues" (with 4 verses and music) inside one of my grandfather's old books. Looks like they were added onto Handy's music (probably in the 1930's?). Haven't seen anything like it. I played though it, nice version! I'll try and post later or maybe I can record it and post it with music.
