Sorry, not as much featured banjo on this one, though it's there for rhythm. Multitrack recording I made using two fiddles, Enoch Tradesman clawhammer banjo, Michael Allen Cloud Nine marimbula (bass), Gold Tone banjo uke, and Cloud Nine hammered dulcimer. If listening through a laptop, headphones/earbuds will permit you to hear the bass. Here's the Fiddler's Companion information about the tune: "Old-Time, Breakdown. G Major. Standard tuning. AB. Source Manon Campbell (1890-1987) learned the tune from his paternal aunt, Viney Campbell Lusk. Apparently, the source for the tune in the family was Campbell’s uncle, who supposedly learned the tune while rafting down the Kentucky River at night. He heard it coming from house parties and dances along the river, but named it “Coal Harbor Bend” because he had become caught in a slow whirlpool at a bend in the river at Coal Harbor (Titon, 2001). Source for notated version: Manon Campbell (Hallie, Letcher County, Ky., 1978) [Titon]. Titon (Old-Time Kentucky Fiddle Tunes), 2001; No. 26, pg. 61."
