Kentucky Music [electronic resource]: Nikos Pappas and Seth Fulsom

Hailing from Lexington, Kentucky, Nikos Pappas is a walking encyclopedia of fiddle tunes and their history. He's also a champion fiddler who has taken home multiple awards, and a member of the great Kentucky stringband The Red State Ramblers. In this performance he collaborates with Seth Folsom, a musician and world-class banjo maker from Louisville. Folsom is also a master performer on the instrument, being able to provide solid backup for fiddle players in the old-time frailing style as well as play a wonderful finger style similar to that of Charlie Poole. Folsom can be heard with some of the finest old-time bands, from Louisville's The JawBones to California's The Crooked Jades. Hosted by Jesse Wells of the Kentucky Center for Traditional Music at Morehead State University.

Kentucky Music [electronic resource]: Karly Dawn Higgins

Rowan County's Karly Dawn Higgins made her start in traditional music with the all-female bluegrass band Hazel Holler. Shortly after she left the band she met a group of old-time musicians in Morehead, Kentucky, and formed the Clack Mountain String Band. The four piece group would go on to perform at national music festivals like MerleFest and Seedtime on the Cumberland as well as performances at Chicago's Old Town School of Folk and the Carter Fold. Higgins fronts her own country group, Karly Dawn and Kinfolk, and can often be seen performing with collaborator Sarah Wood as Karly Dawn and Little Sarie.

Kentucky Wild Horse takes its name from an old east Kentucky fiddle tune played by Wolfe County fiddler Darley Fulks, who possessed a vast repertoire of pre-Civil War tunes.

The group searches out obscure fiddle tunes, bluegrass songs, and even classic jugband music, breathing new life into material that could otherwise vanish.
