Huckleberry Hornpipe is one of the first fiddle tunes that I remember playing in a fiddle contest. I didn’t play it very well at the time and didn’t do very well at the contest. Rather than thinking, “I should go practice some more.” I thought, “Gee, I must need a better song.”
That was dumb, but sometimes that’s how a 12 year old boy thinks!… Since then, I have often enjoyed playing Huckleberry Hornpipe. It’s one of those tunes that really does stick with you.
Huckleberry Hornpipe really is a great tune. It was written by the great bluegrass fiddler, Byron Berline. Enjoy!
