At a music camp dance several years ago, Kit and I heard Heidi Claire fiddling this as the traditional last song of a dance. We just had to learn it and found a notated source by Elena Corey when she was active in the California Bluegrass Association. Here's our banjo/mandolin duet.

Nicely done, Janet, a nice, elegant duet, well played by both of you. It has the right feel, gliding, like a waltz should.

Crossing Boundaries: I was working this Saturday and a coworker, good musical friend, and hard core Dead Head heard my Jukebox playing and came running to my gopher hole when this came on. He wanted to know about it and WHO was playing it. He is an expat from Arizona who wants so badly to go home. They say you can never go home, but it appears you can hear it from here. Well done.

That's an amazing story, Rick. Jerry Garcia played banjo, too, and the music goes back till it's simple and calm again. Thanks for sharing.
