Train on the Island

Key of A or G. Fiddle cross tunes AEAE or GDGD.

  • Old time rendition [Utoob], campsite video of John Schomburg on fiddle
  • Kitchen recording [Utoob], harmony fiddles & vocals, very clear
  • Classically trained fiddler solo [Utoob] Ben Russell house concert
  • Fretless gourd banjo tuned gDADD [Utoob]
  • Our favorite version is by The New Ballard's Branch Bogtrotters. We have their out-of-print CD, "The Galax Way." They have some other tracks on myspace and facebok.
  • We have it on the Big Hoedown CD with Bruce Molsky and Rafe Stefanini on fiddles, Beverly Smith guitar. [amazon] This is a dreadfully slow version and it medleys to another tune.
  • Old: J.P. Nestor [mp3 player at The Bristol Sessions]
