Genre: Old Time / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time
Learned from Alan Jabbour's fiddling, who learned it directly from West Virginian fiddler Henry Reed, recorded by Alan extensively in the 60's. This tune is different from Billy in the Lowground. Contacting Alan was easy and he's most helpful to answer my questions about the tune.

Perhaps the most beautiful rendition of this tune I have ever heard

Another fine performance Janet. What's the instrument?

Thanks so much! Bob, I hope the lilt is just copying the fiddling of Alan Jabbour. Yigal, that's the nicest compliment I've ever received. Rick the banjo is the Bart Reiter Whyte Laydie, different from the mahogany Mac Traynham I've been playing more. I just happened to have "Cookie" out and "MacWillis" stowed in the car.

Thanks, Jimi, Leonie, Lew, and Don. That Bart Reiter Whyte Laydie always gives a bright tone. The tune intrigued me and I'd like to hear and learn more Henry Reed tunes.
