Christine Breen Banjo. Played on my new-old Lyon Healy Mystic in GCGCD. I like to play in this tuning even though the tune is played in D normally. Billy Mathews taught me this tune on his visit to my town July 2008.

Very interesting tune. Never heard it before, but I like it and the way you played it. Thanks for posting.

From Champaign, the road to Boston is basically I-90 all the way!  Real nice picking.  This used to be played at contra dances around here in New England, maybe that's why the secesh here on the BHO haven't heard it before.
