I'm playing the Nate Calkins fretless tackhead #12 that arrived for review yesterday. It is a great Walnut necked grain measure pot banjo and has a wonderful sound and feel. Look for the review in July's Old Time Way. It'll be a good un! This old Stephen Foster tune has had its parts reversed over the years but I play it as was originally set with verse before chorus.

I love it, Dan! What strings are on the banjo? So nice and growl-y! Wish I could get one of Nate Calkins' gourd banjos as they are on sale right now, but had to pay my darn property taxes...
Also, what tuning is that? I want to try it on my Prust tackhead.

Great sounding stuff. What a fun banjo for mello plunk. I like to use the "galax lick" as you do in this tune.
