King Gannam played a wonderful piece with a weird scale and timing, "The Snowflake Reel". It appeared decades later on a K-Tel record called 25 Fiddle Tunes (or something equally inspired.) From there it was picked up by others, notably the Delaware Water String band, and I've heard a straight clawhammer version (have to look up the performer). Funny how things get around.
