I discovered this today on YouTube. Probably Derroll Adam's last big concert, in Germany. Playing the archtop Framus openback. Picking-style: up-picking (like clawhammer, only up-picking on the "bump"). Songs:

Cluck Old Hen
Blow the Candle Out
Pretty Saro
Wildwood Flower
Trouble in Mind
Willy Moore (with Ramblin' Jack Elliott)
Rollin' in My Sweet Baby's Arms (with Ramblin' Jack Elliott)

This is a priceless video. Derroll is one of my all-time favorite banjo players and singers. What a pleasure it was to get to see him in this concert context.

Thanks for posting. I bought one of his records back in the late 60's (Portland Town). He is worth to be remembered!
