My daughter sang this song in school and now I can't get it out of my head :hammer: The song is not about dancing, but a hobo that has a backpack refered to as Matilda

Outstanding Barney,they were & are an incredible breed of AMERICANS :) That one even got this old guy up doin some cloggin w/ my big lab--Back when we used to do two Bluegrass Festivals every year--one in Galax,Virginia & the other in Union Grove North or South Carolina??--the fiddlers contests would range from old men in thier 90's to kids not even 10 yet--Momma,me & the kids always had a ball---I think SMITTY would of loved the festival plus the abundently flowing SHINE--I know I did :D

Well you don't know how much post processing went on but if his voice is still that good he's doing well. I've heard a lot of live stuff where they should have given up 20 years ago... The Who during the SB comes to mind.

Richard,Richard--lets make a list of current singers that really suk--lets start around the Bob Zimmerman(Dylan) era--the man was a poet,darn sure not a singer---anyway J E Mainer was excellent in his time & style of music----Born 1898--Died 1971---Little Anthony & the Imperials at Tioga Downs soon--now--those were singers---same w/Blue Oyster Cult at Tioga Downs this week-end----another one--Ian Anderson(Jethro Tull) a poet turned singer---I just love my Bluegrass---It don't get much better then Allison Krause & the Union Station---don't get me wrong--Kansas is an outstanding group & I'm sure to get an old song playable on todays gadgets--alot of processing is required :D

In the "Good Old Days" they didn't need a pre-recorded track to follow,

and just played a one run through and got it right.

Here's the one of 2 clip of video of Uncle Dave Macon that I

know of. He recorded over 200 songs mostly before 1938.




Born in 1870 Died 1952 " The Dixie Dewdrop"


Couldn't get the other video to post.
