Senator Robert Byrd (1917-2010) of West Virginia (fiddle and vocals) is accompanied in this 1978 recording by Doyle Lawson (guitar), James Bailey (banjo) and Spider Gilliam (bass). I recorded this track from the LP, "U.S. Senator Robert Byrd - Mountain Fiddler," produced in 1978 by Barry Poss and distributed by County Records (serial number County 769). All the program notes on the rear LP jacket cover are included in this video.

A 1978 Time magazine writeup of Byrd as fiddler can be viewed here:
