GUEST Lyr Req: Brown Mountain Light (24) RE: Lyr Req: Brown Mountain Light 22 Apr 19


The Gentlemen did a spoof of Tom Dooley which mocked the Trio, but I never heard a similar take on Brown Mt Light. I did not like the mocking, as it clearly was disrespectful to the Trio’s music. This may be off subject, but I was quite surprised at the blatant hostilities between ‘folkies’ and ‘bluegrassers’ that I have seen over the years and in my travels. Perhaps the Gentlemen’s spoof reflects these feelings. I don’t know how this hostility started, and as one person who started out with folk music in the 60s and later got into bluegrass, I am puzzled and disappointed. I have met and jammed with folkies and bluegrassers all my life- many talented, but a few annoying - on both sides.

For perspective, I am a male, now living in Vermont, relocated from North Carolina.
