about

These mid-1980s recordings feature Lonnie Seymour on fiddle, Jeff Goehring on guitar, and Tony Ellis on banjo. Lonnie was born in Chillicothe, Ohio in 1922. His playing was influenced by a variety of local Chillicothe fiddlers, including his father, uncle and grandfather; and by country music he heard on the radio, most notably that of Arthur Smith. In the late 1940s, Lonnie played fiddle with a local square dance band, The Ross County Farmers, on a Saturday night program on Chillicothe station WBEX. In Lonnie’s later years, Jeff Goehring “apprenticed” with him through the Traditional and Ethnic Arts Apprenticeship program sponsored by the Ohio Arts Council. A number of the solo fiddle recordings featured on this CD were made by Lonnie as learning tapes for that project. – Susan Goehring
