Nooooooo, not me, no white hair 25 years ago! Never saw them, but I am wondering, did you maybe see the A L Phipps Family? They were friends of The Carter Family and played pretty much in their style. I have some of their recordings. I really was not aware that Ernest Phipps was around that recently. But then, I could be wrong ~~ I am every year or so.
To those who offered help, both here and in private messages: I am sure we can work something out, but not right away. I am leaving for Illinois early in the morning, and will not be back until next week sometime. I will get with you when I get back. It is to be an almost non stop feast of volleyball (Friday and Monday)and music at the Fort Kaskaskia Traditional Music Festival(Saturday and Sunday) with a Saturday evening trip to Kentucky Lake to hear more great music.
