Here I play on my banjo for the first time in this forum, and I play the guitar too. This version of the well known song Tom Dooley, I have from A book and some recordings with one of my musical heroes, Doc Watson. He claims he have it from his grandmother, who as a child was a neighbor to the Dooley family. I like this much better, than the very popular version with the Kingston Trio. I think that was ruined (for me at least), because a danish pop quartet had a hit on danish radio with it in the late 50's, early 60's. I can't stand to listen to it today. But this one with Doc I love. Hope I haven't ruined it for you people :-)

Nice banjo picking, Jesper!  Yours sounds like the version I heard at a sing-around in my local area.
