Genre: Old Time
This is the last of three recordings I made with my friend Tim Rowell at Clifftop 2011. The tune comes from Art Stamper, who learned it from his father. His father reportedly learned it from a Civil War veteran, who said that it was composed at the end of the war to commemorate one of the last engagements, in Pike County, Kentucky. So to borrow on of my mother's favorite expressions, this tune is "old, old, old. Tim is playing clawhammer style, I am picking behind him in three-finger style.
