I posted links to hear Pearl Blake’s Tune in the Old Pal thread, 


but I thought this fine tune deserves a thread of it’s own, especially given the recent interest here about old-time on the concertina.


Melvin Wine was an American old-time fiddler from the state of West Virginia. He is the source for many fine tunes including Pearl Blake's. 


Here are links to three different performances, two with Anglo concertina:


You can hear me play Pearl Blake's tune solo. 



Here is Pearl Blake's Tune with me and my buddies Michael Gorin on fiddle and Indy Hoover on guitar.
