  • Image 1 of Round Peak Clawhammer Banjo - Traditional Appalachian Fiddle Tunes from Surry County, NC- SKU# 49-575773 : Product Type Media : Elderly Instruments
    The Round Peak area of Surry County, North Carolina consists of a number of small communities which border Mt. Airy, NC. The Round Peak musical style is synonymous with the old time music pairing of the fiddle with the African-derived banjo and was considered to be the defining ensemble sound for community dance music as played by the holy trinity of the Round Peak banjo masters: Kyle Creed, Fred Cockerham, and Tommy Jarrell. As most of the Round Peak repertoire is played in the traditional fiddle keys of D Major and A Major, they are the keys that are used in the arrangements of some of the traditional Appalachian fiddle tunes that form its living tradition.

    Includes a lengthy instructional introduction. Songs are presented in banjo tab.
