Bruce Molsky: “Red Rocking Chair”

Peghead Nation Old-Time Fiddle and Wade Ward-Style Banjo instructor Bruce Molsky was in the studio recently, recording several lessons, including one on playing accompaniment on the fiddle while singing. To demonstrate, Bruce played and sang the old-time favorite “Red Rocking Chair,” which he also recorded on his 2016 CD and DVD package Can’t Stay Here This a’ Way (Old-Time Tiki Parlour)

Bruce’s version of the tune is a combination of a fiddle version by Norman Edmonds and lyrics culled from different sources, and he teaches this version in his Old-Time Fiddle course on Peghead Nation.
