An old time fiddle tune I heard years ago from Art Rosenbaum. It's an old Irish reel that made it's way to Appalachia and Art described his version was from a banjo arrangement by Jim Lucas of a 'rare fiddle tune'. I play this one clawhammer style in 'sawmill tuning' (gDGCD) on my locally built White Swallow open back, and overdubbed some guitar.

This is from a rough old tape from the speaker of a TV in the late 60's here in Oz. It's from our band 'The Skillet Lickers Bluegrass Band" playing on the Ch9 C&W Hour. A bit of early live Bluegrass from Adelaide, Australia. Thanks to John Boothroyd in Melbourne for the tapes of the TV show!
