I first heard this tune as played by the Hutchison Brothers band on their fine Vetco Records release back in about 1976 or so. John and Zeke Hutchison’s father wrote the tune and taught it to the band’s fiddler Greg Dearth. I stayed with J.W. and his wife Emma Jane once or twice. J.W. was retired by then and spent his early mornings with a room full of fiddles, a cup of coffee, and a cigar. He loved all kinds of music and was proud of where his boys took the music. The band on this track is a fine bunch of old friends. I wish J.W. could have been around to hear Shad Cobb fiddle his tune.
