SLEEPING TIME WALTZ. American, Waltz (3/4 time). USA, Mississippi. Fiddler Gene Clardy (pronounced ‘’Clair-Dee”) was one of the older Mississippi fiddlers to record in the 78 RPM era. It is said he taught Mississippi fiddling great Willie Narmour to play, although Mississippi traditional music researcher Harry Bolick thinks this is unlikely, as their styles are quite different.
