Funded! This project was successfully funded on March 25, 2012.


My son has always called my folk-based music "Hokey-Dokey Music," and I always though it'd make a good alternate CD title.

They say Kickstart projects do better with a video, so here's one that encapsulates my dilemma. I used an old talking blues -- originally "Ernest Tubbs' Talking Blues," but more commonly known as "Talking Guitar Blues." Why create from whole cloth when tradition supplies a good basis?

The project has music from the 19th Century, cowboy songs, some of my Uncle Buddy's songs, hillbilly and contemporary songs,and several of the numbers I've written over the years. I play guitars, banjos (a Minstrel one and a modern one), uke, fiddle, and mandolin. I'm accompanied by good musical friends on bass, dobro, and guitars. I think this music is good, and I'm glad to be getting it "out there."
