PUTNER’S RUN. American, Reel (cut timet). USA, Ohio. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. From the repertoire of Washington Courthouse, Ohio, fiddler Estill Adams, collected in the 1980's by Jeff Goehring. In Ohio, a 'run' is another name for a creek. The tune has been considerably "folk-processed" from Adam's original version. Adams' tune is musically unrelated to northeast Ky. fiddler Jimmy Wheeler's "Putney's Run." One strain of fiddler Fred Stoneking's "Cherry Blossoms" is very similar to Adam's "Putner's Run."
