Subject: Dreadful Memories: The Life of Sarah Oga

When I was very young hitch-hiking around the county Pete Seeger told me of this place called, The Pipesteam Folk Life Center run by Don West and his wife Connie who was a great artist.
I found the place and Don really showed me around in his jeep. At the time there was a festival and all kind of folks would come out of the mountains. This was my 1st time in hearing Mountain music which I took as very real sound from one's soul.
Anyway they had workshops that I went to and I went to one of Sarah's workshop. I will never forget her voice and they way she told her stories, just like a angel singing with that high lonesome sound.
So here is is 38 minute film you can watch online.

Bill,

It was called the Appalachian South Folklife Center, located in Pipestem, West Virginia. I spent the spring of 1972 working there.

Thanks for the correction Mark, and yes I might of been there around that time. I always enjoyed the dining hall and the library that they had on the road near the main entrance. The books there on Labor history were invaluable, one could really get lost there.
When I did that festival(1996)that year I got them to have a web site and because of that we got volunteers from Md. Tenn. and Ky.
Always liked Don's stories and hearing Hossi Hudson sing on stage.
There is a good book called, John Egerton, Speak Now against the Day and it shows Don on his motorbike. But has good info on the many who did so much including Mr. Hossi Hudson.
Singing on stage with Hossi was always fun.
