Cover of a 19th century minstrel tune attributed to S.S. Steele, popularize by the late great John Hartford. This is my own arrangement. I use it as a backing track for alive set without the banjo and lead vocal tracks.

BTW- that banjo is an old StewMac aluminum kit banjo dating from the early 70s. I put a synthetic goatskin head and custom bridge on it and that old mutt just sparkles now.

Very nice. Vibrant vocal and the blend of guitar and banjo is very sunny. Has me wanting to sing along in harmony. Great guitar sound on the break. Here comes the harmony…love it. Sorry about the load up. I’ve got 40 CDs and I’m trying to get them all uploaded so when people want to hear a song they will all be available.
