I call this the "loser's medley" - "Cold Frosty Morn" supposedly derived from tune the pipers played as they gathered the dead from the battle of Culloden; leading into "The Fall of Richmond" very apocryphally associated with the fall of the confederate capital in the civil war - hence loser's medley. Knocked off rather sloppily on my fretless mountain banjo built be Dennis Harrison, which I've had for a month or two. Recorded through my Mac microphone.

Nicely done! A couple of things regarding the information presented, however:

This tune is "Frosty Morning," not "Cold Frosty Morning." One "Cold Frosty Morning" is an old time tune from Melvin Wine, and the other which is associated with Culloden, is a different tune entirely with the "CFM" name. Finally, the other tune is "Falls of Richmond" and is about the waterfalls on the St. James River.
