From Garry Harrison who heard Jutta & the Hi-Dukes play this when they were in Charleston, IL one time. It was originally a "hanter dro" tune, a dance from Brittany in France. He reworked it into an old-time tune. I learned it from an out of print Indian Creek Delta Boys tape called "Antiques, Primitives, and Collectibles". Key of A on the kalbas banjo.
