John Hardy


Recommended Posts

I have a CD player that will allow me to load 6 CD's, so I load it with CD's while I'm working in the garage/work shop.  One of the CD's I had loaded was the Classic Folk Music CD from Smithsonian Folkways.  A song came on and as I listened to it I stopped working on whatever I was working.  I went to the CD player and examined the CD insert and found the song to be "John Hardy" by Mike Seeger.  I knew I had to learn the song.  I found many versions had been recorded in a major key but Mike and Pete Seeger recorded versions in a minor key.  I found I liked both versions and worked to learn both versions.  Attached are PDF files and MP3 files for the versions that I learned.  The DAC/CGC version has a CGC tuned dulcimer playing chords where the melody is played on the DAC dulcimer.  I hope some of you will add one or both versions to your songbook.


P. S. You can listen to Paul Clayton's version of John Hardy on YouTube at this link.
