Vassar Clements - Lonesome Fiddle Blues
You've heard this tune - Charlie Daniels took it and used it in "The Devil Went Down To Georgia". If you need to steal a fiddle tune you probably would look to Vassar Clements, the five time Grammy winner who has played with just about everyone: Earl Scruggs, The Grateful Dead, Jimmy Buffett, and Paul McCartney. Along the way he had worked as a plumber at Kennedy Space Center near his native Kissimmee, and keen eyed readers will recognize him from his appearances with Earl Scruggs on The Beverly Hillbillies. Happy birthday, Vassar!
