Joe Walsh and Scott Nygaard, “Wildwood Flower/Happy Holler”
 
September 12, 2014

In this video recorded in the Peghead Nation studio, Advancing Mandolinist instructor Joe Walsh and Flatpicking Guitar instructor Scott Nygaard play an instrumental medley of the Carter Family song “Wildwood Flower” and the fiddle tune “Happy Holler,” which they recorded on Scott Nygaard and Crow Molly with fiddler Lauren Rioux. “Wildwood Flower” is a Carter Family classic which they’ve transformed into a sort of Celtic ballad, while “Happy Holler” is a fiddle tune that comes from Marcus Martin and is becoming more and more popular in the bluegrass and old-time scene. To learn more about how Joe and Scott do what they do, sign up for one or both of their courses at the Peghead Nation String School.
