Peghead Nation’s Old-Time Fiddle instructor Bruce Molsky recorded this solo version of “Garfield’s Blackberry Blossom” while he was teaching the tune for his course.
This version of “Blackberry Blossom” is not the tune common in the bluegrass world and which comes from Arthur Smith. This tune is much older and is sometimes called “Garfield’s Blackberry Blossom” to differentiate it from the bluegrass fiddle tune. There are a number of great recordings of this version of“Blackberry Blossom” from Ed Morrison, Snake Chapman, and Ed Haley.
