Listening to Ed Haley, it's hard to clearly hear his fiddling. This was Tune of the Week for 3/28/14 and has 3 parts instead of 2 in the other examples of historic recordings for this tune. After looking at a map we found there are actually three forks of the Big Sandy River, so it makes sense to have three parts. I wonder if Ed Haley performed on that river and wish the John Hartford book about his life would be published, even if unfinished.

Nicely played Janet. Somewhat reminiscent of Last Chance.

I agree with you Rick, there are similarities, though when Ed Haley plays on the fiddle I didn't catch it. I've heard of the tune before and am just getting familiar, so it may yet evolve.
