Heidi Clare & AtaGallop

This is athletic fiddling done by an athlete. To find fiddle chords and drone notes like these you’d have to listen to John Carson, Ray Cline, or G.B. Grayson. There comes a time in modern convention when even those with the strength, taste, and talent to muscle through a tune tend to lighten up for the sake of melody, clarity, or finesse. But Heidi just refuses. Once she’s in her “groove” (her word) it would take an old-time southwest Ohio bluegrass bar fight to dislodge her.
