No banjo on this tune, but I'll put it up for a little while in response to a couple comments I just ran across in a BHO discussion. The fiddler is my oldest daughter, Laurie, pictured at left <------ on my lap when she was 2 or 3 years old in 1980 or 81. I just played chords behind her... As a college student, she had been playing and singing with a rock band (I'd call it) but in 1997 was heading off to Scotland for a year of study abroad. I sat her down with a tape recorder in the living room to do some music with her, feeling it was the end of a chapter in our lives. As it turned out, she made connections at the University of Glasgow, went back for grad school and got a Ph.D in chemistry there and is now an assistant professor at Purdue U. in Indiana. And just gave birth to our first grandchild. No more fiddling in the living room.
