Sullivan's Hollow / Roulette

from Homunculus Mellitus by Ben Paley



I had both of these from my father’s fiddle playing — he had them from County’s Mississippi String Bands compilation. Sullivan’s Hollow is an area of Mississippi which had a great reputation for lawlessness, and the tune is from Freeny’s Barn Dance Band. The second tune is from the Mississippi Possum Hunters — recently it was pointed out to me that its original name could be considered offensive, so I have renamed it Roulette. I’m allowed. I can do what I want. You’re not the boss of me.
