'08 MN State Fair Duets Competition. Woo-hoo!

Posted by frailin on Friday, August 29, 2008

Just spent a rowdy day at the "great MN get-together" (our nationally renowned state fair).  Once again the MN Bluegrass and Old-time Music Association (MBOTMA)  sponsored a duet's competition.  Debbie Sorensen-Boeh and I threw our collective hats in the ring for a couple rounds.  I've posted videos of the two numbers that got us into the final round.  They're old-timey favorites:  Chased Old Satan (in "A") and one of my favorites songs that Deb sings, A Mother's Final Words. 


Here's Chased Old Satan 

And here's A Mother's Final Words

Unfortunately I wasn't able to salvage much of the hasty recording made of our play-off number (Little Birdie).  Must notta been too bad.  We got 3rd place (woo-hoo!).  Enough cash for some pronto pups (on a stick)...


and cheese curds.

How much cash do porno pubs require?

Anyway, nicely done tune.

Hey Craig !!!  Love your clawhammer playing, absolutely fantastic. Just wanted to tell you over here in Pulaski New York we have some of the best fresh squeaky cheese curd there is to offer in all the land.... at Colosse Cheese Curd.

What the heck are cheese curds?  And are they deep fried?   Do you eat them with ketchup or mustard, or maybe more cheese? 

My arteries are hardening just looking at them, so they must taste good.

I was going to say- those aren't just cheese curds, they're DEEP FRIED cheese curds. And thanks ,Craig, for posting my sister's performances on You Tube so I can keep up on what she's doing. Dave
