Thread Name: What do Mudcatters play and sing
Subject: RE: What do Mudcatters play and sing
Speaking of...."cows in fields"...back in the seventies I was trying to play and sing along with a Hazel and Alice song in which they yodel. Thinking I had no neighbors and could let it out without fear of embarassment I tried yodeling with them LOUD. The following day at our general store, our local police officer came up to me and apologized for disturbing my dog and causing him to howl in the middle of the night! (I did not confess that it was me.) I started playing guitar in the early sixties on a four string Harmony guitar which made instant music. Played folk through the sixties political activities (SCLC etc)...then got fiddle tunes in my veins at Union Grove Festivals all night jams and Folk festivals in the Smokies. A member of a family group called the "Bergerfolk" put an Autoharp in my hands in the early seventies...have been playing both ever since. Played in a couple bands for a while but decided I'm not a performer and prefer the comraderie and sharing of living room music. Love reading this thread...can we include "most unforgetable music memories" or, if anyone else is interested should that be another thread?
