Subject: RE: What do Mudcatters play and sing
I have the same life story of BRB.
When I was 19, learned some blues, folk songs from an older friend who lived in the USA(they were not so popular in my Country(Brazil).After that I spend some time just playing once in a while, due to my work as a doctor. In the last 6 years (I´m 46 now)I got back to music(though keep on working as a doctor), rediscovered Robert Johnson, Mississipi JohnHurt , Gary Davis, Elmore James,Jorma Kaukonen, etc and the pleasure to play the blues again.I got a Taylor 720, a Johnson Resophonic guitar, have bought a Larrivée recently(great Canadian guitar, and have played some covers and made some songs of my own.Thank God I got back!
