One of the canonical Charlie Poole Tunes. I'm playing mandolin and singing, with Gene Mueller on the banjo and echos. It is also one of our 2 tunes with an appearance of the bow-legged woman, but not on this recording : )
This Moldavin tune comes here from German Goldenshteyn, was recorded in New York with Appalachian Clawhammer Banjo and has since travelled in this from Europe to Pine Bush to Los Angeles and Norway. I play the fiddle and banjo in the recording, thanks to the magic of Audacity.

Elzing's Farewell is one of those magical old-time tunes you can play for hours, especially very late at night. The poik is an East European marching drum with a small cymbal on top. Thanks, Roberta and Scott for the beautiful accompaniment.
