Subject: RE: Origins: Willie Moore
The only other relatively old recording I know is Peggy Seeger's version; she does it on the Vanguard "Newport 1960" vinyl and also on her VERY long out of print Folk-Lyric recording; to make it work she tuned her banjo in what she called "dulcimer" tuning, gDGDD (yes, you can get the second string up that high) .
I think I've heard some old time bands cover it more recently but can't say who. sorry
