I have been listening to this classic recording.
The tune on the recording called "Fiddle and Banjo" seems familiar.
Does this tune have another name?
Thanks, Skip

I’ve heard it identified as either Stoney Point or Wild Horse at Stoney Point.

You beat me to it Brian. It's definitely Stone Point. Below is a link to Tony Rice's version of Stoney Point for reference. I also added a link to Durham's Bull done by the Earls.  Durham's Bull is also referred to by the title Durham's Reel.

Around here in NC, the tune that starts with an Em is called Buck Creek Gap....still Stoney Point or Wild Horse will work.

Scruggs and Warren did a number of different fiddle tunes w/o naming them. Just “fiddle and banjo.” Stony Point was one. That tune, btw, has at least six names.

Great memories! Paul Warren was great! My first two albums were "F&S at Carnegie Hall" and "Foggy Mountain Banjo." I remember having a "vinyl" record player with a 16 2/3 speed, powered by "tubes" so that I could slow down standard 33 1/3 RPM records  to get in between Earl's notes. Earl saved me from becoming a lawyer.

Didn't Lester Flatt once call a "fiddle and a banjo" a Tennessee Orchestra?

I’ve heard this tune referred to as “Washington at Stony Point” or “Buck Creek Gals”.
