Jarrell, Tommy - VIDEOS
There are a many videos available of legendary fiddler Tommy Jarrell.
Banjo player extraordinaire and Tommy Jarrell disciple Heath Curdts has produced a series of 3 Tommy Jarrell videos entitled "A Visit with Tommy Jarrell: Solo Fiddle and Stories," The footage has been professionally edited (very sparsely) and is taken from rare home recordings made by Steve Barasch in 1984 with a color VHS camcorder. The series features Tommy playing solo fiddle on over 50 pieces with occasional singing and some instruction on a few tunes. For those of you who never had the opportunity to visit Tommy, this is as close as you're likely to get. Each video runsabout 60 min., and any profits will go to Tommy's children, Ardena and Wayne. The videos are available from County Sales or may be ordered in wholesale quantities from palmermedia@sonic.net
