Thanks for your encouragement, Jimi. I'm always to happy to discover these obscure tunes through the old-time Tune of the Week discussion. This one comes from the West Virginian Hammons family, the source from where many of the old tunes you hear on BHO originated. Dwight Diller played it and he's a living legend!

Thanks so much, Doug and Phil. I'm always impressed by Hammons family music. There lives were so rural and rugged, their music exquisite and astounding. For me it exemplifies the best of the pioneer spirit.
