Sarah2 ethnic origins of Mudcatters (164* d) RE: ethnic origins of Mudcatters 05 Mar 01


On my father's side, I'm mostly of Scots and Irish heritage, with what my gran used to refer to as "a wee taint of the Brit here and there." My mum fouled that up, being a Messenger, which lot trace themselves back to Salisbury and the mists of time. My taste in the music I play is probably more connected to family culture than any other influence, though. I do enjoy Spanish folk music, it being very available here in the Southwest U.S., but only for listening...it really doesn't inspire me to play it. I like Texas folk music, and do some of it. But I seem mostly to play Irish and Scottish songs and music, for a preference. They were "my people" and it makes me feel connected to them, like reading old family letters or holding some heirloom one of them made.
