Thread Name: What do Mudcatters play and sing
Subject: RE: What do Mudcatters play and sing
Recordings: old-time (High Woods SB, Allen Street SB, Red Clay Ramblers, Fuzzy Mountain SB, Rhys Jones, Volo Bogtrotters, etc.); folk (New/Golden Ring, some of the 1960's stuff); blues/blues-ish (Robert Johnson, Paul Geremia, early Kelly Joe Phelps, Scott Biram, Dave Van Ronk); vintage/retro country (Maddox Brothers, Hank, Sr., Weary Boys, Wayne Hancock, Lefty Frizzell); Cajun & Cajun swing (Lost Bayou Ramblers, Red Stick Ramblers, Hackberry Ramblers); folk rock/pop (Dylan, Gillian Welch, select OCMS, Uncle Tupelo/Son Volt).

Instruments: Appalachian dulcimer, guitar, fiddle. I've decided that I'm only allowed to play two instruments badly--I only play the dulcimer really well--at any given time so I recently declared myself an ex-player of pennywhistle, piano, and hammered dulcimer.

Songs & Tunes: favorites include Seneca Square Dance, Cherokee Shuffle, Elzic's Farewell, Santa Ana's Retreat, Booth Shot Lincoln, John Brown's March, Billy in the Low Ground, Pretty Polly, Amelia [Bob McQuillen], Engine 143, the Golden Ring version of Jesse James.
