From the Bottomlanders via Garry Harrison, who comments 'This one comes from a couple of fellas down in Old Shawnee Town, down on the Ohio River side of Illinois, way down at the south tip (Gallitan Co.) They played the fiddle and banjo, Vince Uselton played the banjo and Ed Bradley played the fiddle and they called themselves The Bottomlanders and once again they didn?t have any name for it so we called it the Gallitan Special'.

Thanks for listening. Do you happen to play Garry Harrison's "Dog Town" ? I know you play some of his tunes. I am working on it on the fiddle but it doesn't seem to set easily on the banjo.
