Hello My Many Thousands of Muley Fans :)
Today I visited with the Nashville Old Time String Band Association at the Fiddle and Pick Music Center in Pegram, Tennessee. They are certainly a talented and interesting bunch, and I hope to get to know them better in the future. Dad was with me, and he and I did something we have talked about doing for years. After leaving the Fiddle and Pick we went to downtown Nashville and did some busking. I met a nice young man that was playing a Vega banjo on a street corner, and he kindly allowed me to knock out a tune. I played East Virginia. Then we located the famous Arcade described in Uncle Dave Macon's song titled "The Arcade Blues." Unfortunately it was closed, so we went back down to the strip where I broke out my Deering Goodtime banjo and played "Long Steel Rail" on a side street just off the main drag. To our surprise and amusement, a lady came up and took my picture and gave me quarter. I will add this 25 cent piece to my great accumulation of wealth that I have acquired with my banjo playing. (Ha ha)
That's all for now...Mulehead Out!
