Album Notes
The four musicians of Back Step Cindy have been immersed in this old-time music tradition collectively for more than 100 years: Howard from summers in New Hampshire in the 1940s, Sandy from her years in North Carolina in the 1970s and tune-catching travels in Virginia, Art from his exposure to the Ralph Case Dancers, and Joe from his experience playing for old time fiddlers at jams, festivals, and dances.

We learned the music from the first generation and continue playing and teaching it in the Baltimore and Washington DC area.Although no longer able to jump as high as our flatfooting colleagues Kim and Jan, Back Step Cindy can play that traditional music for hours just as we learned it from the masters: Speedy, Blackie, Joe, Melvin, Tommy, Ernie, Gerry, Bob, and many more.

Back Step Cindy includes Sandy Hofferth (fiddle), Howard Zane (banjo), Joe Langley (guitar), and Art Abrams (bass).

Sandy was influenced by North Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia fiddling, with some New England and Cape Breton fiddling thrown in. She has won ribbons at numerous fiddle conventions over the years, including the Carroll County, MD, Farm Museum, the Friendsville, MD, Fiddlers contest, and the Appalachian String Band music festival in Clifftop, WV. She has performed at such diverse locations as the Carter Fold in Hiltons, VA, and RFK stadium. In 2006 she taught beginning fiddle at the Augusta Heritage October Old-time Week.

Howard plays thumb-lead style, clawhammer, and regular “knock down” style banjo, the way he learned from “Uncle Bob,” whose father had been a regimental banjoist for a unit from Alabama during the Civil War. Since then he’s been influenced by Dwight Diller, Neal Walters, Bob Flesher, Reed Martin, and Gerry Milnes, all great banjo players. He and Sandy also led the New Southern Cowtippers.

Joe is a dance band’s ideal guitar player, with a strong, steady, and powerful rhythm. He dances regularly in the DC/Baltimore area, has played for many dances, and is a regular in old time jams throughout the area. Most recently he played with the AP and the Banty Roosters.

Art has been active in old-time music for more than 25 years. He played bass with the Ralph Case Dancers, a traditional clogging group in the DC area originally from Asheville, NC. Art also played bass with AP and the Banty Roosters.

Our Instruments:

For A tunes Sandy plays an Oral O. Henderson, Elkview, WV, fiddle, no. 45, made in 1992, with Cherry Blossom carving on the sides. For C, D, and G tunes she plays a German-made Strad-style violin found hanging on the wall sans finish at Renninger’s Antique Market in the 1980s and restored by Dalton Potter.

Howard plays a civil-war-style fretless banjo, tuned one-fifth below standard, built by Bob Flesher for the movie “Andersonville (1996),” and played by the actor Ted Marcoux. On the waltzes and marches he plays thumb-lead style, the way he learned from “Uncle Bob,” whose father had been a regimental banjoist for a unit from Alabama during the Civil War. He plays clawhammer and regular “knock down” style banjo on a 1903 Fairbanks Whyte Laydie #7.
