    "Old Grimes", with mandolin and guitar (no fiddle here). An autumnal-sounding fiddle tune, mellow as a punkin filled with apple butter.

    Sometimes said to be a.k.a. "Dubuque", but the tune of that name that I am familiar with has a different melody and chord progression. The A parts of both tunes have some melodic affinity with "Whiskey Before Breakfast".

    "Old Grimes" seems to have been rather obscure before Chris Eldridge and Julian Lage started to play it a few years ago.
