Learned from the playing of the Highwoods String Band. This is part of the tradition of "execution farewell" tunes, traceable back to 1912 or before. My friend Alex Demas is on banjo, and Pete Anick on guitar. Alex runs the Banjo and Fiddle Contest every year in September in Lowell, Massachusetts.

Wow that's great Dave, but it was way to short!

Thanks HH-

It was originally recorded for my book Oldtime Fiddling Across America, and we had to squeeze 66 tunes onto a tape...

Happy 2008,
