Great film but whoever did the film transfer, that warble is horrible.

maybe that was beyond their possibility ,but they still opted to go on, I am ok with that. I am tickled to death with the internet archive vs the no net days.Maybe you could give them some good advice over there.

Guitar player is (spelled) Peter Rowan. Still active, still very creative and an excellent performer.

Clay, Monroe called Pete "Pete Roans". I prefer it that way. Pete even quotes Monroe that way on his new record "The Light in Carter Stanley's Eyes".

I agree of course the "correct" spelling is Rowan. I'm sticking with Roans. I invite you to join me.

Other Monroeisms I sincerely enjoy: Dale McCoury, Westconsin, Ioway, Newbraska and tremble (tremolo).

Pete Rowan on stage, while telling Monroe stories, always said Monroe referred to him as plural.

Dick,
Precise old scientist that I am, I probably will stick with "Rowan." But what a wonderful story; thank you for educating me with that nugget!
