John Hartford Fiddle Device Cards
Important Alert! These cards are a a limited offering, leftover from a Kickstarter campaign and we're delighted to be able to offer them, until they're gone.
John Hartford was known for always carrying index cards with him. He used them to remind himself of song ideas, to make grocery lists, and in the last 20 years of his life he used them to notate fiddle ideas and techniques he gathered from fiddlers all over the continent. He called these cards "Fiddle Devices." The Hartford team has chosen the best 88 cards, had them printed and compiled and I am able to offer them to you now, for the very first time, to purchase for yourself. They come beautifully wrapped and the package also includes the Hartford 3x5 Card Manifesto in which John Hartford explains the entire index card system and how to use it in your own life.
John Hartford Fiddle Tune Project Vol. 1
This album features music from Hartford’s personal composition journals, interpreted through the lens of some of today’s most beloved acoustic musicians. With everything from driving full-band arrangements to sentimental duets and parlor waltzes, the song treatments will appeal to both traditional and progressive music listeners. Hints of bluegrass, old-time, folk, country, and even classical music styles come through and emphasize the versatility and timelessness of John’s writing. Produced by Matt Combs, and Hartford’s daughter Katie Harford Hogue.
Artists performing on the album: Matt Combs, Brittany Haas, Tim O’Brien, Megan Lynch Chowning, Kate Lee O’Connor, Forrest O’Connor, Sierra Hull, Mike Compton, Tristan Scroggins, Ronnie McCoury, Dominick Leslie, Jan Fabricius, Alison Brown, Shad Cobb, Noam Pikelny, Chris Eldridge, Chris Sharp, Jordan Tice, Mark Howard, Rachel Combs, Paul Kowert, Dennis Crouch, Mike Bub, Kristin Andreassen

Inside Out - Megan Lynch Chowning and Adam Hurt
Early in 2015, Adam Hurt and Megan Lynch Chowning had an opportunity to play a couple tunes together at a camp where they were both instructors. Adam called a tune he had been interested in for a while, Tugboat, knowing that Megan was a National Champion “Texas style” fiddler and would be likely to play it, or at least be familiar with it. He had no idea it was one of her favorites and that she would be so excited to have that tune suggested by such an unlikely person, a champion clawhammer banjo player steeped in Appalachian styles. Megan's husband Adam and their friend Tyler Andal happened to be nearby and as they are both accomplished rhythm players in the Texas style, they were happy to jump in and add to the jam. It was a fantastic and exciting result. Both Adam Hurt and Megan realized in the that moment that they were likely creating a mashup of styles that needed more exploring. This album is the result of that exploration. For more information about tunings and sources, click here...
Face to Face - Megan Lynch Chowning and Adam Chowning
My husband Adam and I have made an album of classic old time fiddle and banjo tunes. We are so excited to share this with all of you. Engineered by the incredible Brandon Bostic and recorded right here in Ridgetop, TN, we are so proud of the sounds, the tunes, and the fact that Winston (our dearly departed Boston terrier featured on the cover) can be heard snoring in the background once or twice. These are the tunes we sit around and play together and this is the music we have come to love.
