S.P. Buck Mulligan Cantwell says, 'Huddie =Hudson'! SAY WHAT????? (17) RE: Cantwell says, 02 May 98


I have read that Leadbelly pronounced his first name "HEW-dee", not "H^Dee" (the caret being the stressed equivalent of schwa, as the 'u' in "button"). This would seem to me to argue strongly against "Hudson" which I doubt has ever been pronounced "HEW-D-son" anywhere. Could be wrong.
