Thread Name: Monymusk - What does this mean?
Subject: RE: Monymusk
I was referring to Roy Wooliver, with tongue in cheek. Since you may not know of his reputation, he influenced Gene Goforth and many other Missouri fiddlers. John Hartford does his version of Monymusk on Hamilton Ironworks. My familiarity with Ozark musicians comes from living there for a number of years.
He was a gifted musician but an odd fellow with a taste for drink. And he was a bit cross-eyed. Lighten up, lady! Bluebelle?
