Comments:

This is West Virginia fiddler Clark Kessinger’s version of the widespread rag Whistling Rufus.  There isn’t much of difficulty here, just be careful of the timing as with all rags.  Kessinger used some vibrato in this piece, which is denoted in the transcription by a squiggly line to the left of notes to be played vibrato.
