Genre: Bluegrass / Playing Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)

One of my original banjo tunes, melodic style. I was very much into melodics in the early 1970s. From a practice tape by Silver Spring, Vancouver BC, mid-1970s. With Rick Ross, guitar; Bob Goldberg, mandolin; Bill Terry, fiddle; Don Fraser, dobro; Ken Hatch, bass. Banjo: 1929 Gibson model 6 flathead. In British Columbia, road or highway bridges extending over railroad tracks are named "overheads." I was intrigued by the name of this one, near the town of Revelstoke, and wrote a tune around it.
