John Hardy

John Hardy is a tune that has been around the block a few times. To say it is well recorded is an understatement.

Here’s Cedric Watson and the Mad Minstrels with an unique version featuring gourd banjo, fiddle and stand-up bass. I know Watson’s work as a button accordion player and fiddler. Interesting to see he’s playing banjo too.

You’ve heard the story before. John Hardy killed a man during a craps game and later hanged for his crime. It’s apparently a true story.

Leadbelly was a guitar player of course, but he recorded John Hardy on button accordion…

Have your say...
