Farmer/Veteran

The folk song "Swing And Turn, Jubilee" serves as the basis for the soundtrack, created by Phil Cook. This is an old standard appalachian party song or "zipper verse" song. A live version was recorded in 1963 by Jean Ritchie and Doc Watson. Another version was recorded by Carolyn Hester on Columbia Records, featuring a young Bob Dylan on harmonica. Alexandra Sauser-Monning and Amelia Meath have performed the song live as a duo and also as members of Mountain Man.
