TOTW - 9/4/2020 - Carrolltown Breakdown

Samuel Bayard, the famous tune collector from Pennsylvania, had several versions recorded of Carrolltown Breakdown, popular during his day. He claimed it's related to Buffalo Gals, so I tacked that one at the end for comparison. The first comes from one of the sources, Wilbur V. Neal, who was an elderly man when recorded in the 1950's. The second comes from the modern arrangement by Mark Tamsula and Richard Withers, based on the source fiddled recording of Harry "Tink" Queer, in his 50's in the 1950's, and the last is a snippet of the traditional Buffalo Gals.

The B part is more reminiscent of Buffalo Gals. Nicely played.

I agree. The A part is like a harmony to Buffalo Gals. It might be fun to play on top on my own recording and hear the two songs played together.
