Genre: Old Time / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time

This is a clawhammer arrangement of a tune that I first learned for tackhead minstrel banjo, from James Buckley's 1860 'New Banjo Method', played on a modern steel string open back banjo.

Sensitive arrangement, very peaceful, sounds modern.
