This fantastic little tune comes from Illinois fiddler Mel Durham, and his family got the tune from an ex-slave named Alonzo Janes. The original name of the tune eluded Mel, so it's now named after the man who taught it to him. This is just a quick short recording to demonstrate the sound of my fretless slothead banjo made by Dan Pennington.
