This is my homage to Old-Time or Old-Timey music, the genre of country music that preceded and informed bluegrass. It had its day in the 1920s and 30's and is said to be the oldest form of indigenous American folk music, with the exception of Native American music. I spent many hours as a teenager playing this music with friends--and believe it should be represented in the repertoire of American serious concert music. Both movements reflect the American folk dances that evolved simultaneously with this genre of music.
