Shove that Pig’s Foot a Little Farther Into the Fire – 3:11 – Traditional American Fiddle Tune (Instrumental, Old-Time, Celtic, Acoustic, Strings)
Justin: This tune has the distinction of my favorite tune title ever and just so happens to be a great tune as well!
Vi: Justin and I both really enjoy this tune, and we felt like it’s underrepresented in fiddle music recordings. The old time flavor in this tune is as thick as molasses and as rich as pan-fried cornbread rolled in butter.
…They play so beautifully together that it’s hard to imagine these two award winning fiddlers are not twins. I love this!

…This wonderful album will surely touch your heart and feet!

About the Album
Bringing together old time fiddling and the spirit of western swing, Vi Wickam and Justin Branum team up to capture that heart and soul of the old west.
Vi and Justin first met playing in fiddle contests around the mid-west, and became fast friends. They each appreciated the other’s musicianship, and musical sensibilities.
When Vi moved back to Colorado in 2009, the one thing he missed about living in Indiana was getting to jam with his fiddle buddies, and particularly Justin.
In 2016, when Justin and Vi formed an impromptu duet at the National Twin Fiddle Championships and finished in the top 5 overall, the inspiration for this album was born.
