Subject: RE: Yodelling
Jimmie Rodgers laid a foundation upon which later yodelers were able to build and he may not have done the fancy tricks of those who came after him, but he used the yodel very effectively and when I listen to his recordings today I am not left with the impression that there are others who are better at the craft.

Several fine yodelers who have not been mentioned so far are David Bradley, who does western music, Kerry Christensen, an Alpine yodeler, Teresa Endres from South Dakota, and Marge and Debbie Rhodes whose duet yodeling is reminiscent of the Cackle Sisters.
