Bitter Creek

I listen to a lot of music outside of the mainstream star-maker machinery these days, and I’m constantly amazed at the breadth of content people have posted up on YouTube. It’s a remarkable resource. People learning this music when I was growing up without any internet, had to physically seek it out.

Here is Bigfoot at a campsite at Clifftop in 2011, playing Bitter Creek. I’ve been listening to Bigfoot in my car a lot recently. I’ve taken workshops led by the banjo player in this video, John Herrmann. I LOVE his playing. For those not into old time music, Clifftop, or the Appalachian Stringband Festival, located in West Virginia, is the biggest of the summer old time music festivals.
