Played by Dempson Lewis's Descendant. There's a little talking going on before they start to play. Tune is almost played through once.

Do you know the fiddler's name or when this was recorded?

Pete Lewis, rancher out of Crow Flat, Southern Otero County, New Mexico. Friend of the family. I just didn't want to put any names out there for everyone to see, I know most everyone who you can hear talking on that cut, some are relatives of mine.

Thanks for posting the Lewis Brothers music, I have a strong interest in early Texas fiddling and was wondering what your connection is to the Lewis brother's descendants? Are they still around and are they still fiddling?

I should add, do you have any other recordings of Pete Lewis and his interpretations of Lewis brother tunes?

Good stuff. Do you think Earl Collins was an influence at all here or vice versa? I'm not familiar with Lews Brothers.

As I understand it, Earl learned Bull at the Wagon from the Lewis brother's recording or from Tom Sauber (who learned it from the Lewis Brother's recording).
