John Reischman, Sharon Gilchrist, and Scott Nygaard: “Sail Away Ladies”
 
By: Dan Gabel
February 10, 2015

“Sail Away Ladies” is a mainstay of the old-time fiddle repertoire, popularized by Uncle Bunt Stephens’ 1926 recording included on Harry Smith’s Anthology of American Folk Music (as “Sail Away Lady”), and is also performed as a folk song with the familiar lyrical refrain “don’t you rock ’em daddy-o” (and variations on that pronunciation). Here, mandolin master John Reischman and Peghead Nation instructors Sharon Gilchrist and Scott Nygaard play Kenny Baker’s version of the tune in the Peghead Nation studio.

To study with Sharon, take a look at her Peghead Nation Beginning Mandolin course, and to learn from Scott, see his Flatpicking Guitar and Weekly Guitar Workout courses. johnreischman.com, sharongilchristmusic.com, scottnygaard.com
