Subject: RE: Dulcimer to be Kentucky State Instrument
Thanks for posting that, Kytrad. I get a little homesick for Pinetop (it's just over the hill from Bath, where Uncle Ed Thomas lived) now and then, and that heartful of songs you took out of Viper has given me a lot of solace.
In Ken Burns' "Jazz" somebody told the story of how Dizzy Gillespie explained his relationship to Louis Armstrong: "No him, no me."
Every dulcimer player in the country can point to Jean and say "no her. No me."
