Thread Name: Oldtimers who just keep on keeping on
Subject: RE: Oldtimers who just keep on keeping on
it is a great topic!

not quite 80: Willie Nelson is creeping up on 80 and still going strong, and Johnny Cash kept going until the last minute, in his 70's, and I think some of his best stuff was towards the end.

How old was Margaret McArthur?
Elizabeth Cotton?
Mississipi John Hurt?
