A version of "Cluck Old Hen" I created, played on my old open-back banjo using a hand-made Cocobolo bridge.

The old hen is being quiet and thoughtful today. A nice, wistful interpretation.

Thank you, that is how I felt about it while playing it - kind of a call across the prairie. I've since added a slightly different ending, and renamed it "Winds of Change".

I just realized I didn't explain that very well "call across the prairie". I have a wonderful old sepia photograph I founseen a thrift store, of an elderly farmer's wife out in the barnyard surrounded by flying chickens. While I was playing this tune I was imagining what it was like to be out in the middle of the prairie, far away from loved ones. My ancestors were original settler farmers, and traveled across the length of Minnesota in the middle of winter to settle along the Des Moines River into a tiny little shack, and I was thinking about what that trip must have bern like, and the old farmer's wife in the photo, while playing the tune. I'll post the photo sometime soon.

Thanks, Christine! Now I'm working on a neat song from Kentucky that dates from the early 1900's, which I found in an old music book. Hoping I tabbed it out right:-)
