Texas Folklife Festival

Posted by jbrosser on Sunday, June 10, 2007

This weekend, the Texas Folklife Festival was held in San Antonio, Texas.  My friend, Oel Castner, and myself were invited to perform on the Storytellers stage.  While Oel told old cowboy stories, I played my Five String Dulcijo softly behind him.  We had a great time!  I recieved a lot compliments regarding the look and sound of my instrument.  It was great fun, great food and I met a lot of great new friends.  I've posted a few pics for you to look at.

That's a great idea. What sort of tunes did you use as background?

Erich, thanks for the note.  I played a lot of Cowboy songs (Home on the Range, I'm an Old Cowhand, Back in the Saddle, Cattle Call, Yellow Rose of Texas, Eyes of Texas, etc.).  Then I played a lot of tunes that sound good slow or if I picked up the pace (Froggy went a Courtin "probably one of your favorites", Cindy, Old Joe Clark, Wildwood Flower, You are My Sunshine.  I had practiced around 30 different tunes and would insert them as appropriate to the story.  Great fun!
