For enthusiasts of early banjo
Another of Sweeny's songs, published by Henry Prentiss, Boston, 1840. In all likelihood, this piece is another one that Joe brought into the tradition from his own southside Virginia culture.

I love this!- what a great sound you three have!!
Agreed. I love the ensemble sound of banjo, bones, and concertina. You guys sound really good here.
Real nice guys. Love hearing this tune.
Dan'l, I don't know all that much about playing in ENSEMBLE. We was playing in the CEMETERY. In the WIND. In OXFORD, North Carolina. "Ensemble" has right smart of a Frenchified ring to it. Would that be in Looziana?
Everybody, please understand that my "ensemble" comment was merely a light-hearted joke. Mark informs me that there has been a bit of serious discussion going on here that might have folks' feelings sensitive. One reason we enjoy playing "Ole Virginny Breakdown" is that it is a comical nonsense song. We're gratified that this video seems to be enjoyed here in that light-hearted spirit.
Thank you Sirs and Madam,
I quite like a concertina myself. We were missing our usual guitarist however.
