    Welcome to Get Up in the Cool: Old Time Music with Cameron DeWhitt and Friends. This week’s guest, Stephen Landis, is a close friend of mine, and I often look to him when I’m contemplating how to be; which is why I’m releasing his interview now, even though I only recorded it a week or so ago. Also, Stephen introduced me to Old Time, and I’m very grateful to him. Not just for teaching me my first tunes, but for sharing his reverence for the tradition.

  • Episode 6: Brian Slattery (I learned this tune from...)

    Welcome to Get Up in the Cool, episode 6, wherein I jam and chat with renaissance man Brian Slattery. I really love the theme of this episode: Brian doesn’t learn old time tunes from source recordings, so he chose tunes that he learned from specific people, in person. In a way, Brian is more old time than my nerdiest guests (God bless them); his sources are all relational.
