TOTW - Arkansas Traveler 4/26/13
Another tune from my jam with mouth harp player Marty Lebenson, from the 2010 Harry Smith Frolic, an old time gathering in Greenfield, out in the hill country of western Massachusetts. Marty really rips it up on this one. I'm playing my Fairbanks Whyte Laydie in open D tuning, without picks.

Lovely version, Don and Marty!!! I know it so many styles and tunings, but I've never heard it so laid-back and bouncy!!
