History:  'Salt River' is a tune that according to the Library of Congress, was a fiddle tune of the old frontier from the Henry Reed Collection. The song credited to Alan Jabbour and Henry Reed dates to 1966.  it is believed the reference was to a river of that name in Kentucky.  Bill Monroe and His Bluegrass Boys recorded this fiddle tune in 1964 under the title 'Salt Creek' (Decca 31596), modifying the original name in honor of the creek in Indiana near where Monroe held his annual Bean Blossom Festival. Monroe's banjoist, Bill Keith, apparently got the tune originally from West Virginia banjoist Don Stover. The Monroe recording has given the tune a new lease on life on the bluegrass circuit. Henry Reed's set is melodically fairly simple, suggesting the possibility that the tune was usually played as a banjo tune. The tune's distribution seems to have been limited to Virginia and West Virginia before its bluegrass diffusion in the later decades of the twentieth century. As a tune, 'Salt River' is a scion of the large family of tunes best represented by the Irish and American reel 'Paddy on the Turnpike'.
