Here is a version of One More Dollar, written by Gillian Welch. She released this great song on her 1996 album, Revival, which can be purchased in digital form from her web site. This our our band, the Burr Oak String Band. Ann is singing with harmonies from Mark, and we recorded it in Ann's living room.

I had done a version back in 2014, right after I had worked out the tune. This is a more current version recorded for at TOTW. I haven't really changed much in my approach.

Versions of this song was collected in Illinois in the 1940s, 50s, and 70s. I finally managed to sing the chorus for a TOTW.

Learned from Billy Mathews who got it from Jim Lansford, who probably got it from Art Galbraith.

I learned this tune from Tony Ellis' delightful CD called Quaker Girl, on which he plays some of the prettiest waltzes ever played on banjo. This isn't one of those waltzes, but I've been captivated by it for a couple of months. I'm in two tunings here, high base on the tackhead (open G tuned down to D; dADF#A) and double-d on the WL-250, and as usual I've drifted a bit from the true melody. This tune was composed by Tony Ellis, and my version here is posted with his permission. Thanks for the tune! I had actually recorded this in May of 2008, but had only posted it on my personal site, with Mr Ellis' permission.

We had a good group this night, and they were willing to play Ragtime Annie. I think it was the first time we had played it together, but of course we knew it. It's just one of my favorite tune.
