TOTW 9/20/2019 Johnson Boys
From the playing of Virginia fiddler Albert Hash, this Tune of the Week for 9/20/19 is an old and widely recorded and tune.They say it goes back before the Civil War and was a comical courting song. The Johnson Boys really got around, even when they were broke.

Whimsical is the word that comes to mind. I think this in part is due to the title (like “ornery” Johnson Boys), and from your comments. Very pretty tune, and you sure can pull some nice tone from your banjers! Nicely done Ms. Janet
