Love this tune. Sadly I didn't get any source info on it as I collected it at a time when I wasn't always writing that stuff down, so if anybody knows something, speak up.

Notice the bowing pattern in the B part especially.

Great tune (not so easy to play!) Here's some information about it:
"New Money" was popularized and recorded by Doc Roberts of Madison county, KY. He learned it from African American fiddler Owen Walker, a mentor whom Doc said would help him "Any way in the world."
Here's Doc recording for Gennett:

This tune is still widely known in Kentucky, and JP Fraley played a lovely, more easygoing version. Stlll some nice bowing.

I learned it while backing up Doc's son James, who played it on mandolin, for a week at the 1982 World's Fair in Knoxville, TN.
