Billy In The Lowland

An Old Time tune by Henry Reed. (Not to be confused with "Billy in the Lowground")
I heard it from a friend of mine who plays a lot of Old Time. It struck me as having a more interesting melody than most OT music and I got to like it. Bars 6 & 7 lend themselves to syncopated shuffle bowing.
It’s played here by Alan Jabbour and Ken Perlman.
