A version in the repertoire of fiddler biography:Ed Haley (1885-1951), who was born in West Virginia, but who later lived in Ashland, eastern Kentucky. “Ed Haley had a way of making up versions of tunes that only remotely resembled other people's although he probably played the other versions also... being that kind of musician. He had different tunes he played in different parts of the country,” remarked John Hartford.
