Off of my 2001 banjo CD, I think that with 'Russian around', Bob Yellin created one of the best banjo tunes of all time, but I have never heard anybody else play it, and never had the opportunity to perform it myself. The fiddle on this recording was played by Matthias Linke, one of only a handful of bluegrass fiddlers in Switzerland, but who went far into Slavic ground stylistically, adding a copious amount of flavor to the tune.
