Cold Frosty Morning is usually played peppy in old time circles, but we always thought this tune had much more heart. We slowed it down, added an original bridge, and backed it with Celtic chords. Then Ellen let her mandolin dance around the banjo melody. Hope it breaks your heart--just a little :) Lame Horse banjo, Gibson mandolin, Ken Miller guitar
