This West Virginian tune has a special place in my heart as being the first hoedown I learned on the pipes, and also the first tune I played in an old-time session. Chris Layer and Pete recorded a version of this on Chris's Return of the Rivers album (1997), with Chris playing Scottish smallpipes. It seems to me the tune also suits the Border pipes in a quasi-bluegrass setting. The pipe solo here borrows heavily from an alternate version of the tune, learned from the playing of Alan Jabbour.

trad. Appalachia, from Burl and Edden Hammons, via Pete Sutherland and Alan Jabbour. Caleb (fiddle), Tim (Border pipes), Joseph (mandolin), Pete (banjo), Neil (guitar), Mike (bass)
