PUTNEY'S RUN. American, Reel. The source for the tune is fiddler and instrument maker and repairman Jimmy Wheeler (1918-1987) of Portsmouth, Ohio. A 'run' in Ohio refers to a creek. "Putney's Run" is musically unrelated to the similarly-titled "Putner's Run," from the repertoire of Washington Courthouse, Ohio, fiddler Estill Adams. Kerry Blech sees similarities between Wheeler's "Putney's Run" and Ohio fiddler Lonnie Seymour’s “Log Chain (2).”
