Subject: RE: BS: How Many of Us Perform With Family?
You mean you've had that site for a while and were just waiting for the right time to spring it? Tooooo much!,br. Memsahib and I have performed together for about 20 years. When Maritn was two he broke up the band we were in by escaping the baby sitter and coming up on stage to sing. He knew all our songs. When he was 4 1/2, he started playing a little fiddle and by the time he was 9, he was the full-time fiddler and I switched to mandolin.
At 13, when we formed the klezmer band, Memsahib went to singer and front-person, I went to tenor banjo and guitar and Martin stayed with fiddle. Thats the situation today except that he and I also do Irish music and he plays bass in a 20's&30's danceband called Stardust where I am the vocalist and guitarist.
We all do other stuff musically as well but this is the extent of the family music.
