Five Versions of Grey Eagle

I have just posted five versions of Grey Eagle from the following fiddlers:

  • Gene Goforth
  • Ed Haley
  • Bartow Riley
  • Cyril Stinnett
  • Ambrose “Uncle Am” Stuart

All of these can be found in the Grey Eagle tune group. Goforth’s is by far the fanciest I have studied. Stinnett and Stuart both play it in the key of C (rather than the usual A), and Stuart even plays it as a hornpipe.

Happy fiddling!
