In the 2006 movie “Seraphim Falls” during the closing credits showing the character’s/Actors, a version of “ stack em up in piles” with lyrics, is followed by a rousing fiddle/mandolin instrumental. Is  anyone familiar with this recording and who it is and where I can find it? It is not on the soundtrack.

Here are a couple of links. Please note, I dropped an extra beat that Melvin Wine played.

This tune is very haunting and reminded me of another I heard several year ago called "Texas" I think this was also a Melvin Wine tune but not sure.

Texas is from Henry Reed. From Alan Jabbour's notes: "Texas [AFS 13035b08] No variants can be cited for this irregular and beautiful tune. Henry Reed here called it "Texas," and said he learned this tune from a Mr. Drummond(s) from Texas, but during a later performance (AFS 13705b15) he was certain that the title was "New Castle," after the county seat of nearby Craig County, Virginia. The discussion preceding Henry Reed's later performance ("New Castle," AFS 13705b15) contains interesting comments on "Jawbones," "Shoes and Stockings," and Quince Dillion, as well as a discussion of Henry Reed's role as a participant in these tune-teaching sessions and reflections on how he recalls tunes. - A"

Hey Carib - Thanks for the correction. I now recall it is a Henry Reed tune. Still think it has a lot of similarity to "Stack em up in Piles". Wish I could take credit for that upload. It was done by my friend Paula Wheeler who always did a great job on this tune.
