ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In 1963 Hank Bradley received an all-expense, two-year tour of North Carolina courtesy of his local draft board, and used his intervals away from Fort Bragg for a musical education on fiddle and banjo at old time fiddlers conventions. Returning to California, he took an early part in raising the late-60s wave of string music in and around Berkeley, doing occasional fiddle gigs with Doc Watson and playing extended sessions at Sweets Mill with Ron Hughey, when not surveying the BART tunnels. Finding many attractions in the string music of southeast Europe, he took the summer of 1970 in Yugoslavia and Bulgaria, later became the Washington state fiddle champion of 1975, recorded this album in 1977, and currently lives in Seattle applying the scales and rhythms of Balkan music to new compositions.
