SEABOLT QUICKSTEP. Old-Time, Breakdown. USA, Missouri. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Source Jim Herd (1919-2002) was born in Eastview, Missouri, but moved to Washington State in 1951. He retained his Missouri fiddle style, however, learned from early influences such as Lonnie Robertson. Beisswenger & McCann (2008) record that Herd told recording producer Mark Wilson (Rounder Records) that he believed the title referred to a dancer named Sissie Seabolt, from Hancock County, Tennessee. Wilson suspects that quicksteps such as this were once popular along the Tennessee/Kentucky border area. [Ed.: while there appear to have been a few Seabolts in Hancock County, Tenn., there is no mention on the web of Sissie].
