Vi and Steve have transcribed all of the melodies and several of the variations, back ups and harmonies they play on their sizzling recording of the same name.  The transcriptions are for fiddle, mountain and hammered dulcimers and contain musical notation, fiddle bowings and fingerings, mountain dulcimer tablature, hammered dulcimer chord shapes.  Also included are resources about learning traditionally and how to use these arrangements.

Old School Old Time is a collection of 15 tracks of old-time music, including a couple of originals from each fellow, learned and shared by many generations of players and now picked up and taught to each other, coming out in some refreshing arrangements that highlight the beauty of the instruments and the liveliness of the tradition.

Are you saying, “I know what a fiddle is but what is a whamdiddle?”  The whamdiddle is a slang name for the hammered dulcimer; “hog fiddle” is a slang name for the mountain dulcimer, both are traditional American folks instruments.  Together with the fiddle they make for a porch-picking, knee-slapping good time.

“This album is a breath of fresh air for the old-time music community.  Smart song selections, fresh accessible arrangements, and great performances by Vi Wickam, Steve Eulberg and the supporting musicians make for a very enjoyable listening experience. – Matthew Hartz, National Fiddle Champion

A celebration of Old Time Dance Tunes for fiddle and both fretted and hammered dulcimers.
Tight, spirited, and varied arrangements  by two excellent folk musicians.
Present throughout is an obvious love of both the material and the craft of presenting it.
Well done.
– Don Pedi

Vi Wickam is a 3rd generation Colorado fiddler with several fiddling awards under his belt, most recently serving as a judge at the National Old-Time Fidders Contest in Weiser, ID.

Steve Eulberg has won several prizes in the Walnut Valley Flatpicking Festival, in Winfield, KS, most recently serving as a featured performer there.  Together their cross-pollination produces the foot-stomping, heart-pumping, head-bobbing music that snagged audiences all summer on the streets of Fort Collins as performers in Streetmosphere.

Vi Wickam filmed Fiddle Tune a Day for the entire 366 days of 2012 and the pair played for several of these Fiddle Tune a Day videos.

In case you are interested, here is a bit of information about where Steve and Vi learned the tunes that are on this album.

Special thanks to Jill Stillwell and the City of Fort Collins for allowing us to do the album cover photo shoot in the one-room Upper Box Elder School at the old Fort Collins Museum.  Still the best Old School we know!
