Notes as they appear on the original LP:

The Hollow Rock String Band has been playing old-time string band music in the Durham, North Carolina area since 1966. Its repertory consists of tunes learned from old fiddlers’ conventions in North Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia, and adapted to the old-time string band style which has long enlivened country-dances in the upper South. Partly because the style is so closely associated with dancing, it focuses upon the music, not the musicians: there are no “breaks” showing off individual instruments, and the melody is repeated with only slight variations. All the instruments but the guitar play the melody, and even the guitar occasionally takes up the melodic line. The banjo is played in the style variously described as “clawhammer” or “knocking,” and the guitar uses the well-known flat pick style with a generous portion of moving bass-line. Of the fiddle style it can only be said that, while each player has his own mannerisms and certain regions likewise develop their own stylistic traits, fiddlers generally learn tune by tune, leaving many of the stylistic elements in the tune as they acquired it. Few fiddlers play every tune in the same style, and the differences reflect their multiple sources. The mandolin generally follows the fiddle, making only the adaptations necessary in transferring the melody to a different instrument.

Shortly before this album was recorded, Henry Reed of Glen Lyn, Virginia died at the age of 83. Mr. Reed, who provided us with most of the tunes on this record, was an extraordinary repository of traditional tunes of the highest caliber. He was born near Peterstown in Monroe County, West Virginia and grew up in the midst of a vigorous tradition of old-time instrumental music. At an early age he learned to play the fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandolin, and harmonica, and he quickly acquired a rich and varied repertory of East and West Virginia tunes. His father, uncle, and elder brother were all musicians, and at least ten other older men in the area taught him tunes. He came under the particular influence of Quincy Dillion, a Civil War fifer and fiddler who, though over ninety when Henry was a boy, still relished his whiskey and his ancient fiddle tunes. The full extent and quality of Henry Reed’s repertory will become clearer with the appearance of a book-length collection, devoted solely to his tunes, which I am now preparing. In the meantime this small sampler is gratefully dedicated to his memory and the example of his musicianship.

Alan Jabbour

Alan Jabbour, our fiddler, is from Jacksonville, Florida and came to Durham to study English at Duke. He began collecting traditional music in 1965 and has Alan Jabbour, Bertram Levy, Bobbie Thompson, Tommy Thompsonrecorded old-time fiddlers in Virginia, West Virginia, and North Carolina. When he is not teaching English or writing his dissertation, he divides his time between studying folk music and playing fiddle tunes with the rest of us. Our mandolin player, Bert Levy, has just completed his medical studies at Duke. He comes from Long Island, New York, is a sailboat enthusiast, a classical guitarist, and has played banjo in a bluegrass band. Bobbie Thompson designs book jackets for Duke University Press and teaches printmaking in the art department. She has been playing guitar since 1965. I'm in philosophy at U.N.C. and started playing the banjo in 1961. Bobbie and I come here from Jacksonville, Florida via New Orleans. We have a seven year-old daughter, Jesse, who says all fiddle tunes sound alike. Hollow Rock is the name of the community near Durham where we live.

Traditional Dance Tunes was originally recorded and released in 1968 by The Hollow Rock String Band of Durham, North Carolina. The source of most of the tunes was from Alan Jabbour's the group's fiddle player field recordings of Henry Reed, an old time fiddler living in Glen Lyn, Virginia. Not a terribly sophisticated album even by OT music standards but well-done and excellent tune selections. Check out the Fuzzy Mountain SB and the Red Clay Ramblers while you're at it. Betty Likens.

At least one other Scottish tune on this album which I can recommend as an excellent band for dancing to. I have enjoyed listening to this band and am sorry that in the 21st century they are no longer playing together Posted by Susan K 9 months ago. Re: Trad.
