The musical legacy of John Hartford returns with The John Hartford
Fiddle Tune Project: The Tour, a show consisting of his previously
unheard compositions, performed by musicians from the Grammy-
nominated album, The John Hartford Fiddle Tune Project Vol. 1: Megan
Lynch Chowning, Tristan Scroggins, and Adam Hurt.
John Hartford is well known for his songwriting but after his death in
2001, his family discovered over two thousand original and
unrecorded fiddle tunes that he had been keeping in file cabinets
under his desk.
Scroggins, Lynch Chowning, and Hurt bring this unexplored part of
John Hartford’s legacy to life. Scroggins spent years working for the
John Hartford Office helping to archive the last of John’s writing.
Megan Lynch Chowning, who helped copy edit the accompanying
fiddle tune book, is known for her expert knowledge of fiddle tunes in
the same way John was through his extensive note taking and
interviews with masters. Though they never met, John surely would
have been in awe of Adam Hurt who is one of the preeminent banjo
players in the world. As both banjo and fiddle players, John and Adam
are connected by their deep passion for American traditional music.
Megan, Tristan, and Adam use their combined talent to present a
show that is fresh, familiar, historical, and never before heard. A way
to relive the “Goodle Days.”
