Daniel and I first sang this song by the Carter Family in the fall of 1991. We were spending a lot of time visiting Dan’s sister Cecilia and her husband (at the time), Andrew Bonner, at their home in Somerville, Massachusetts. We had aa little group we called “the Garfield Street Orchestra.” We learned old-time songs and sang them in four part harmony, Dan and I played guitar, Cecilia played fiddle and I can’t remember whether Andrew ever played piano on any of it – he might have. What I do remember is singing for the love of it, not a performance or tour date in sight. We did, however, make about 10 copies of a little cassette that we gave to our families at the holidays. This was my first experience playing “traditional” music, and I will always be grateful to Cecilia and Andrew for these good times.
