Audio Archive: Davy Crockett's Fiddle

We all know the Disney song The Ballad of Davy Crockett. But did you know he Played the fiddle? And did you know it's still in existence? There is even a CD recording of Dean Shostak Playing it. Dean is a musician from Williamsburg Virginia who is known for being one of the only people in the world to know how to play the Glass Armonica among other Glass instruments. But on this album its all fiddle and its the real one Davy owned. The songs are of the American folk style from several generations. You can see the track list below. The last track is the most unique. It features three songs about Davy Crockett from three different time periods the third being Disney's version. It's a surreal experience to hear the song we all know and love but this time on his own fiddle. So now I share that experience with you.
