Anyone know the name of this tune on a YouTube video taken at the recent Black Creek Fiddlers Reunion?

Sounds something like Snow Shoes...but I'm not sure when they get to the B part.

I hear something of Melvin Wine's "Greenback Dolly-O", though much faster and not quite as melodic.

There's not much to the tune but see a little resemblance to Greenback Dolly O as carlb mentioned. The 2nd part sounds like he's going into Golden Slippers... then quits.

Well, Dan, I’m assuming you are gonna play that tune and need the name to call it…not sure what you’ll end up calling it, but I hope to hear what you do with it.

I guess I'll just have to call it "The Unknown Fiddle Hangout Greenback Dolly-O from the 2022 Black Creek Fiddlers Reunion Tune," although I may not learn it for awhile!

Based on some research I've done this evening, I believe this to be a tune by fiddler Bob Townsend who also plays with the group Fiery Gizzard Old Time String Band. This tune, I believe, is included in the group's 2017 album "Old Time Fiddlin' Tunes from the South Cumberland" that is posted via Bandcamp, and the tune is entitled "Oscar's Piece #11."

So many of these old tunes just start sounding like so many other old tunes at times, it seems. So many times I start messin' with one thinkin' it's thus and thus, only to realize later on it wasn't thus and thus at all, but rather this and that, or something similar.  Sometimes I even start out with the one but end up on t'other...it just gets confusing.
