>Emmett Lundy-Fiddle tunes from Grayson County, Virginia


These recordings of legendary old-time fiddler Emmett Lundy were made for The Library of Congress By Alan and Elizabeth Lomax in 1941. Lundy was a venerated fiddler in Grayson County, a region that gave us so many fine musicians (Ernest Stoneman, the Ward family…) and his playing represent an old fiddling tradition of this area.

As usual i included a pdf document of the nice 12-page booklet that goes with the lp, so you can read in lenght about the Lundy family and his fiddling style.
