  • While Strolling Through the Park One Day by Ed Haley – Charles Manning, Piano Improv


    “While strolling through the park one day, In the merry merry month of May,” are the first two lines of the song “The Fountain in the Park.” Written by Ed Haley and published in 1884, the song is popularly known as “While Strolling Through the Park One Day.” Featured in many films, the well-known song was sung by Judy Garland in the 1940 film, “Strike Up the Band.” Recordings include the 1938 recording by Shep Fields and his Orchestra and the 1961 recording by Bing Crosby.

    During the Apollo 17 Moon mission, NASA Astronauts Harrison Schmitt and Eugene Cernan sang a few lines of the song on the Moon, changing some lyrics for the momentous event: “I was strolling on the Moon one day…in the merry merry month of December…When much to my surprise, a pair of bonny eyes…(followed by humming).” Improvising the song in an early 20th-century musical style, Charles Manning strolls down the piano keys in this merry merry month of May.

  • Ed Haley Forked Deer HOME RECORDING


    Ed Haley was born on August 16, 1885 on the Trace Fort of Hearts Creek, Logan W. Virginia. At the age of three years, Ed contracted measles and subsequently lost his eyesight. on the Trace Fork of Harts Creek in Logan County, W. Virginia, He made recordings for the family on a Wilcox-Gay disc-cutting machine brought home from the service by his stepson Ralph. The recordings feature Ed, Ella, Ralph (on guitar) and daughter Mona (vocals). Ralph eventually distributed the recordings among his five siblings. Eventually about a one-half to one-third of those recordings were released to Rounder Records. It is estimated that two thirds of Haley's recordings are still missing, lost, destroyed(??), or unreleased by family members. Beginning in 1990, Bluegrass and folk musician John Hartford began researching the story of Haley's life and music. Generally, Hartford spent the last years of his life promoting Haley and his significance in the world of music. He learned a number of Haley's tunes and recorded them on the Grammy-nominated albums, Wild Hog in the Red Brush andSpeed of the Old Long Bow: A Tribute to Ed Haley. Hartford and Brandon Kirk, a Harts-area historian and genealogist, collaborated on a Haley book project from 1995 until Hartford's death in 2001. In March 2000, Smithsonian magazine featured a story about their research. The Ed Haley manuscript remains unpublished.[5]
    In October 2015, Haley was inducted into the West Virginia Music Hall of Fame. Any corrections/additional info welcome

  • Boatman From Ed Haley, Dan Emmett and All Around


    Boatman is a tune I have heard and played for a long time. The tune's origin can be traced to Dan Emmett, the minstrel musician who is known for Dixie, amongst his many compositions. For this version, I start with Ed Haley's fiddle version, and then play the version I learned first, which seems to me to be in wider circulation. I thought I would throw in a variation up the neck, just for variety. Ed Haley, born in 1885, was a blind fiddler who traveled widely throughout West Virginia, Ohio, eastern Kentucky and southwestern Virginia.

    I am playing a Gold Tone OT-800 set up by Logan Greene. I like it's bright projection, low action and excellent playability.

  • Catlettsburg


    Catlettsburg has become renewed for me. When I revisited this fiddle tune, remembering the difficulty in getting the higher notes, I thought to try it in another tuning. From double C I changed to old C -- gCGCE -- and found it much easier. After listening to JP Fraley play Ed Haley's tune, and then again to the original Ed Haley fiddling, I put in a slide in the first measure. All-in-all, it's much easier and more enjoyable to play.

    Whenever I play an Ed Haley tune I think about the life of this blind itinerant fiddler (1885 - 1951), born in West Virginia, whose talent attracted the late, great John Hartford to devote years pursuing his life story. Along with Brandon Ray Kirk of West Virginia, they uncovered much through Ed's family. He was blinded possibly by measles before he turned three, lost his father due to a lynching, learned fiddling when very young with the help of his uncle, and performed successfully all his life. He married a blind musician and they raised several children, including Laurence who John and Brandon befriended and who released the private recordings of his father we now can listen to and learn from.

    Unfortunately the biography of Ed Haley has had so many stumbling blocks for publishing that it's adead in the water project. Too, too bad for those of use who like to know the history behind the musician. But you can still read in Brandon's blog about much of their discoveries (

    When I searched Catlettsburg in Brandon's blog there were references to this town in Kentucky where Ed Haley lived. Since Revolutionary times it was a town many pioneers passed through on the busy Ohio River. It's a known fact that much of Ed's fiddling career was spent on steamboats, entertaining the passengers, as well as on street corners where he busked.

    Hope you enjoy this busy, but pretty, tune.

    Here I am playing my first fiddle, an old Stainer copy with plenty of cracks and repairs. I still enjoy playing it even though it is a little rough around the edges. It is setup with steel strings and a rather flat bridge. I learned the tune Indian Squaw from the recordings of Ed Haley and the fiddle is tuned GDAD so you just tune that high e down to d and you can get that unison dd while fiddlin' around with the other notes. Thanks for listening!

  • Dora Dean


    In the latest Banjo Newsletter Adam' Hurt's new CD with Megan Lynch, called Inside Out, was reviewed and recommended by Ken Perlman. Dora Dean was one of two tunes from the CD tabbed out in the article, in case you get BNL. As it turned out, my final Skype lesson with Adam will be Dora Dean as played by the venerable Kentucky/West Virginian fiddler Ed Haley.

    I can't begin to say what a challenging, rewarding, and fun experience my lessons with Adam have been. I'll never play anywhere near his caliber of musicianship, but he's a wonderful teacher for all levels and we've had a totally fun journey of learning. Without his dynamic homework assignments it will be like retiring from my beloved teaching position -- but I know there are still lots of exciting possibilities for my future. And Adam will still be there for any consulting, sharing, and questions I may have. I owe him a big Thank you!
