OLD FOLKS SCHOTTISCHE. American, Schottische (cut time). F Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. The tune was recorded by John Harrod from the playing of Wolfe County, east-central Kentucky fiddler Darley Fulks (1895-1990). Harrod writes [1] that Fulks credited the tune to the repertoire of Dave Athea, a fiddling barber in Campton (though originally from Virginia) from whom he learned several tunes in the early 20th century. Fulks recalled that "when he wasn't cutting hair or shaving somebody" he would play the fiddle, and Fulks would sit on the front steps of the shop and listen.
