thanks, dj and phil - I'm speechless!

john - it's Elder Greene Blues.  The youtube link displays the title of the video, which is why I never bother in the post...  maybe that's a browser and OS specific behavior, though... 

youtube allows me to extract the mp4 file, and then I converted it to mp3 to bring the file size down.  It's still about 4MB, so it'll take a few minutes on dialup, but not the week and a half that a video will need:

Little Brothers - Elder Greene Blues

I dunno if it'll be very interesting as an audio file...  might be, I guess.

Thanks very much for posting the non-visual version, Frank.  That really does sound great--you've got some powerhouse time-keeping going on there, and the occasional places where Kim and Sam are doing high tremolos simultaneously are kind of hair-raising.  Very strong singing, too, just happening in every way!
All best,
Johnm

The birth of the Burns & Allen of the Blues! Frank's looks of anticipatory horror are priceless!

The tune is called "Kitty Puss" and it's from a fiddler named Buddy Thomas.  He's a great old-time fiddler...  one of Kim and my favorites, anyway.  He had a tough life, but everybody I know that knew him recalls him fondly.

from jalopy - the balance between my voice and the guitar was kinda off all night, I think, but we finish it up nice.
