Subject: RE: Mudcat CD's on WFDU
Thank you all for listening and for your kind words. Amos was a wonderful guest, he spoke eloquently about Mudcat and this CD project.

I want to say it again, I really think this CD project captures the spirit of an old-fashioned sing.   Everyone coming together to share new songs and sing old favorites. I truly see this set as being a great "tool" to help perpetuate folk music, much in the same spirit as the Harry Smith anthology had in the 1950's. Granted that was a different animal, it served as an introduction to folk music for many people.   The Mudcat set is a living "document" that shows folk music is alive and well and there are great songs in each of us waiting to be shared.

I can't wait for Vol. 6!!!

Thanks again to everyone! It was wonderful to know that many of you were listening in today. It was an honor to present this program.

Ron
