Thread Name: Beautiful write-up on Art Thieme
Subject: RE: Beautiful write-up on Art Thieme
I met Art only once and briefly at the Big Muddy Festival in Boonville. I have corresponded a tiny bit with him and he has very kindly sent me material (that was not released on any record!) to be used on my radion show. If there is a better personification of a folk muscian anywhere out there, I've yet to meet him or hear of him. And a quick look at the people on this thread, many of whom are pretty important "somebodies", and have expressed their admiration for him is an indication of just who and what he is. You don't inspire comments from people like these without being something very special. I am in awe.                   Jim Hickam
