Thread Name: Lyr Req: Sugarbush (Josef Marais)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Sugarbush
I was a student of Eve Boswell's for 7 years and to me she was the only one and true singer for Sugar bush and pickin a chicken. She even taught her Cockatiel to sing it with her. She was an amazing person and singer and extremely talented. It saddens me to see that she is not remembered as well as what she should have been. She was fluent in 11 languages, an animal lover and a wonderful cook. And when she sadly passed away at 76, she was still doing shows and teaching. She could sing Jazz and put us all to shame. She was well liked and loved amongst all her students. From the youngest to the eldest. She was a perfectionist and organised everything right down to the last detail.
