Suffet New York (CT/NJ) Mudcatters (9) RE: New York (CT/NJ) Mudcatters 14 Nov 10


Nothing but the truth!

I am a New York Mudcatter. I was born and raised in East Virginia early on a frosty morning. My Daddy was a miner, and I'm a miner's son. My Mama would rock me in the cradle, but I left home when I was just nine days old. That's when I picked up a shovel and I walked to the mine. The captain said, "I got me a steam drill round," so I told my captain, "Your men a-gonna leave you" and I said farewell to Nova Scotia, the sea bound coast. Then I traveled all over this country, a-digging, prospecting for gold. I found rocks and gravel make a mighty fine road, so with a ten dollar horse and a twenty dollar saddle they sent me to New Bedford, that famous whaling port. But I caught me the end of a long freight train and fanned my tail to the Oregon line. I was walking down the track with tears in my eyes, trying to read a letter from my home, when along comes the sheriff from Connorsville saying, "Pay me or go to jail." Well, I ran so fast the hounds couldn't catch me, down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico. So if you ever see me coming back, I'll extend to you my paw, but it's gonna be through a telescope from the great Atlantic Ocean to the wide Pacific shore.

Now if you detect even the remotest grain of reality buried beneath all that woofing and whooping, why not come find out for yourself? I'll be performing at the Peoples' Voice Cafe in New York City this coming Saturday, November 20, to celebrate the release of my newest CD, Live Performances. Also on the bill that evening will be my good friend and musical companion Anne Price plus special guest artist Hillel Arnold. Anne and I will each do a set of our own, and then after a short break, Hillel will do a couple of songs. Then the three of us will finish the evening together.

Here are the details:
