This is one of the classic Ed Haley rags -- part of the treasury of Haley tunes that John Hartford helped "popularize." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ed_Haley

This recording is by Gandydancer at the Library of Congress, December 12, 2007. Gandydancer performed there for the American Folklife Center's "Homegrown" concert series.

Gerry Milnes and Dave Bing on fiddles. Ron Mullennex on the five-string. Mark Payne on the flat top. Jim Martin holding it down on the bass. ... some of the finest West Virginia musicians of the modern age!

The full Homegrown concert is here: http://www.loc.gov/today/cyberlc/feat...

The show Gandydancer played later that day at the Smithsonian's Millennium Stage at the Kennedy Center (the audio is better on the Kennedy Center show, but I personally still like the Homegrown version of Cherry River Rag better): http://www.kennedy-center.org/explore...
