    Sorry I haven't been around much of late - I've been wood shedding the tenor banjo (not a pretty site!). Just dipped back in and discovered this great tune. Has an eastern European feel to it - puts me in mind of some of Andy Cutting's tunes.
    David's wonderful tenor guitar version inspired me to dust down mine. I've played it considerably slower than the Johnny Cunningham original and put it in Em to make use of some of the lower registers on the tenor. Tuned the G up a tone to get an open A drone as well.

    A fine rendition, James.

    James, I really liked your version on the tenor, slowed down and mysterious and yes very much like an Andy Cutting tune. I love this tune so I had to give it a go with backup, tenor guitar & concertina backed by guitar & bass with some French adverts from a time gone by.

    Great recordings, David and James! I like it at both tempos. Also check out the Will Fly recording on the old "Other Tunes" thread!

    I first recorded this tune in 2010, but listening back to that recording, the timing in the B part wasn't right. I think I have it figured out now, so here is a new recording I made this evening. This is a trio of two mandolins with tenor guitar, using a harmony line I found online (can't remember where):

    Mid-Missouri M-0W mandolin (melody)
    1921 Gibson Ajr mandolin (harmony)
    Vintage Viaten tenor guitar
