Peghead Nation’s Clawhammer Banjo teacher Evie Ladin was recently in the Peghead Nation studio to record new lessons for her course, and played and sang a great version of “Got No Honey Babe Now,” a tune written by North Carolina old-time fiddler Frank Blevins and His Tar Heel Rattlers. Evie got the tune from fiddler Rhys Jones and played it for years with her San Francisco-based old-time band, The Stairwell Sisters

Blevins recorded the song in November of 1927, when he was just 16 years old, singing and fiddling with his brother Ed and their friend Fred Miller. They recorded six sides on that first session for Columbia Records, followed by another two sides in April 1928. Those were the only recordings of Tar Heel Rattlers, and Frank, who went into the furniture business shortly after the Depression, mostly put fiddling aside in the early 1940s after his brother passed away.
