This is a different version than is on the CD. Howard Armstrong is playing mandolin here instead of fiddle. For those who don’t know Howard Armstrong was one of the great musical geniuses of America. He spoke a half a dozen languages. He was a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and instrumentalists. His band, Bogen, Martin and the Armstrongs was rediscovered by Steve Goodman and at an advanced age started playing the folk circuit. He is gone now but he had a good run and was actively playing well into his 80’s.
