WILD HOG IN THE RED BRUSH was nominated for a 1997 Grammy Award for Best Traditional Folk Album.
This album is a generous helping of tunes (19 in all) which were allegedly first performed by Ohio River Valley fiddler Ed Haley. His actual recordings were an influence on John Hartford
and his Hartford String Band (a subsequent release, THE SPEED OF THE OLD LONG BOW, is a full tribute to Haley's music). In researching this music Hartford and his cohorts encountered selections which were reported to form part of Haley's repertoire, but which he had never recorded.
The music yields a varied and deep range of sources and inspirations, some of it starting as Celtic music and migrating from the British Isles via immigrants to America. The notes detail what is known of each song, and are presented with Hartford's customary casual friendliness and light humor.
