Pittsburgh area musicians bring new life to regional heritage

 

Album Release Party
Rural Valley Melodies: 
Old Time Music of
Southwestern Pennsylvania

Nov. 24, 2019      2 - 5 PM
Hambone's
Lawrenceville, PA

Mark Tamsula  and  Richard Withers with  Dave Krysty


Pittsburgh old time music icons Mark Tamsula and Richard Withers are giving new life to a regional music tradition. Their new album Rural Valley Melodies presents 13 tracks of traditional Appalachian music historically rooted in Southwestern Pennsylvania. Mark and Richard perform tunes collected by the renowned music historian and Penn State professor, Samuel Bayard. Bayard visited fiddlers and fifers in this region between 1928 and 1963, and published over 1000 of their tunes in two books, Hill Country Tunes, and Dance to the Fiddle, March to the Fife. Most of the tunes are performed on fiddle and banjo, the traditional "old time" instrumentation, but also include one on the fife in keeping with the rich heritage of fife music Bayard drew on as well.  They are joined on several tracks by veteran guitarist Dave Krysty, also a pioneer in the revival of traditional music with local roots. Samuel Bayard and his source musicians are gone, but Tamsula, Withers and Krysty bring their music back to life on fiddle, banjo, and guitar.

Rural Valley Melodies is only available as a digital download from The Snappin' Bug Store.
