Wednesday Tune Fix – Festival Waltz

This tune is from the great Bluegrass fiddler Kenny Baker. I bought all of Baker’s LP as they were released across the 70s and 80s. It first appeared on County LP 736 “Kenny Baker Country” in 1972. It also appeared on the compilation CD issues by County called “Kenny Baker – Master Fiddler” and is still in print available from

Here’s how Kenny got it done.

This tune has really cool chords, too. Check out my leadsheets page for suggested “holts” for this tune.

This playlist will show you how to get over on this great waltz.
