Great album, even tho’ Bill Monroe isn’t on it—it was thought at the time that he said he “wouldn’t play with no longhairs.” And this song, in particular, even tho’ it was not “roots” back then. it is that now, 42 years on. Went out and bought me a dulcimer kit soon after, I did.
Thanks for the like, too.
The longhairs quote is priceless.
Great – buying a dulcimer kit after hearing it. Did you learn to play it?
My pleasure – love what you’re doing.
I did, sorta. But soon after the glue dried I realized I’m more a wood worker than musician; I can pick at one end and press chords on the other, but sadly little music happens in between.
At least you were able to construct a dulcimer, I can only imagine how mine would have turned out (probably something like the “horrors” I built in wood shop). Not that my playing would have been much better. Granted I would have liked to have done both ably, but John Prine was on to something when he sang, “You are what you are/and you ain’t what you ain.t” At least I can appreciate both…
Love this album, Tom; I see we have a lot of the same tastes in music. Thanks for posting because I actually forgot I had the CD (album yes, but forgot the CD). Cheers!
The album really shows what good music can do – bring people from different backgrounds together.
It is the first time I listen to them…But I really love it!!! I have just returned from the river with my “bestias” (my two bBorder Collies) and I am driking a glass of wine…And this is the perfect moment for this music!!! Thanks a lot for sharing it !!!
Have a great weekend!
Glad to hear you like it. Enjoy the wine and the music.
I thoroughly enjoyed this! Thank you so much for sharing.
You’re very welcome!
