Credit goes to Edden Hammons for this week’s tune. “Washington’s March” is another gem from the Hammons family repertoire, one that reportedly won Edden the 1939 Greenbrier Vally fiddle championship.
It’s original composer is unknown, said to have been written or simply collected by someone further down the Hammons family tree.
And while not technically a “march” in its rhythm, it is nonetheless an effective number for compelling nearby humans to move their feet.[NOTE: The Clawhammer Song of the Week “March Madness” tournament has been narrowed down to the final 8.
