Genre: Unknown/None Chosen / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time

Narmour & Smith tune based on an arrangement by Evie Ladin of the Stairwell Sisters. I was fortunate to interview her for the July 2008 BNL. Tab for this tune accompanied the article. Played on 1890s Bay State Model 300 A-scale.

This is really fine.  Your getting a great old-time sound out of that banjo.   I love it when a tune covers the whole range of the banjo neck, from way down deep in the holler to way up high on the mountain, up high in the pines.  Nice.

  I like the fourth string work.  I am not familiar with the tune so I wouldn't know if it was done right or not but I liked it. 

  I agree with the others, that is one fine sounding banjo for clawhammer.

I've just been working on this and will post the video later today. It's great hearing your version, David. What a nice banjo tone, too. Which banjo are you using? The Vega Longneck?
