Jack Hickman - Kingston, ON BS: Washboards (31) RE: BS: Washboards 06 Nov 99

Greetings, All

Some years ago, I belonged to a group in Kingston called the Soup Kitchen Symphony. Although there were some good musicians in the group, the name seemed to be a magnet for every musical wierdo in the area. One of them had put together a washboard with the damnedest combination of sound effects you have ever seen or heard.

On rare occasions he would let me play his washboard, and I found that 25 cent pieces worked as well as anything to get sound out of it. That was before the Canadian $1 coin became prevalent, and I'm sure if I had a chance at a washboard now, I could make some beautiful music with a "loonie." For those incognoscenti, that is the nickname adapted for the $1 coin.
