Description

These recordings feature Ward Jarvis on fiddle, Dana Loomis on banjo, and Jeff Goehring on guitar, and were made at Ward’s home in Stewart, Ohio in 1977. James Ward Jarvis, born in 1894, moved to Athens County, Ohio from Calhoun County, West Virginia in the late 1940s to work in the timber industry. Ward’s repertoire reflects his West Virginia origin, with many archaic open- tuned pieces, as well as several more melodic pieces popular in the 1920s and 30s, including his wonderful rendition of the 1950s Tommy Jackson composition, Tomahawk.
