Subject: RE: Dulcimer to be Kentucky State Instrument
Thanks to all of you for those good words...Pinetop Slim, I'll have to dig up what I wrote- it wasn't an article, more like a paragraph, or a "Statement." Anyway, it was read into the Senate record, I believe. Immortalized!!! Kat/Kat, my granny got that name because,one day when her dad came into the room where she was sleeping, he looked down into the cradle and said, "Looka there- that young'un's all quiled up j'st like a little cat!" And she was called Katty ever since- should be spelled, "Catty," and usually is, but I wrote about her in my book SINGING FAMILY as Katty, so am stuck with the spelling. Doesn't matter...
