Subject: Origins: Info on 'Dixie Hoedown' by Jim & Jesse
From: Scoville
Date: 01 May 05 - 07:22 PM

This should be quick if somebody has the info somewhere.

I'm looking for composer and composition/copyright date for "Dixie Hoedown", a banjo tune recorded by Jim & Jesse. I'm assuming it's 1950's or 1960's but I don't have any of their recordings and I can't find a date for it online. I'd also like to know in what key it was originally recorded.

Thanks!

You can hear it played by them there. Could get the key from that.

According to my dulcimer (which I just tuned), it's in G#.

Most fiddlers I hear play "Dixie Hoedown" do it in the key of G.

The first part chords are G C G D, the second part are G Bm C D G (I think).

Dixie Hoedown is a great tune! (I had no idea that Jesse was as good a fiddler as he is; the original recording was twin fiddles with Jesse and (I think) Vassar Clements.)
The tune has also gotten into the old time tradition; a version of it was collected from Bob Douglas of Chattanooga (born 1900 and still alive in 1995!) and recorded by the Red Mountain White Trash. As can be said of so many other old time tunes, "it's the same, but different." You can't call it "simpler" . . . April Verch of Ontario also recorded a version; it's more like the Bob Douglas version than the original. Go figure.

Ha ha--I learned it from a banjo picker who only sort-of knew it, and adapted it for Appalachian dulcimer. It actually works pretty well, but it's definitely "the same but different".

It appears that nobody has found the copyright date on Dixie Hoedown, one of the two bits of info that Scoville asked about in the original query. I have also looked for a copyright/publication date for this tune with no luck. . . But if someone knows - please share the info!
Best,
