Back to Old Sharon
OLD SHARON. See "Cotton Baggin'," "Julianne Flanagan." The tune was recorded in 1936 by Sidney Robertson from the fiddling of Harry "Tink" Queer in Ligonier, PA. That same year a very similar tune called "Sharon" was played for Margaret Valient by fiddler Russell "Tiny" Wise at Cherry Lake Farms, Florida [Hart & Blech, who note that Wise was probably the same individual who was famous as "Chubby" Wise of bluegrass fiddling fame]. See note for "Julianne Flanagan."
