This is a traditional Mormon song based on Stephen C. Foster's "Hard Times Come Again No More." It is said to have been Brigham Young's favorite song. Performed by a string band I put together for a pioneer reenactment trek. Craig Carter, Gracie Metcalf on violin, Sarah Whitney on Mandolin and vocals, Spencer Merz on ukulele, and myself (Jon Whitney) on banjo and vocals.

Played in the key of F# minor (I think) out of A tuning (G tuning up one step). The drones are tuned to A and F# (a minor third inverted). This is to demonstrate how the Double Drone Banjola allows flexibility in choosing the drone sound. One is open, the other capoed at the 3rd fret but tuned down a half step (could be capoed at the 2nd fret, but there is no spike there).
