The musical legacy of John Hartford returns with The John Hartford Fiddle Tune Project: The Tour, a show consisting of his previously unheard compositions performed by musicians from the Grammy-nominated album, The John Hartford Fiddle Tune Project Vol. 1: Megan Lynch Chowning, Tristan Scroggins, and Adam Hurt.
John Hartford is well known for his songwriting but after his death in 2001, his family discovered over two thousand original and unrecorded fiddle tunes that he had been keeping in file cabinets under his desk.
Scroggins, Lynch Chowning, and Hurt bring this unexplored part of John Hartford’s legacy to life. Scroggins spent years working for the John Hartford Office helping to archive the last of John’s writing. Megan Lynch Chowning, who helped copy edit the accompanying fiddle tune book, is known for her expert knowledge of fiddle tunes in the same way John was through his extensive note taking and interviews with masters. Though they never met, John surely would have been in awe of Adam Hurt who is one of the preeminent banjo players in the world. As both banjo and fiddle players, John and Adam are connected by their deep passion for American traditional music. Megan, Tristan, and Adam use their combined talent to present a show that is fresh, familiar, historical, and never before heard. A way to relive the “Goodle Days.”
