The "pigs foot" in the title refers to a kind of poker used in blacksmithing, or more commonly to move the fuel around in a hearth or wood stove. The tune comes originally from western North Carolina fiddler Martin Marcus. It was featured in the soundtrack of the movie Cold Mountain a few years ago, retitled by the producers as Ruby, With the Eyes That Sparkle, to fit the plot line. This is a very impressionistic version, with a lot of rolls and other right hand patterns to give it some pulse. The banjo is tuned to standard open G.
