Thread Name: Old time and Bluegrass-- Differences
Subject: RE: Old time and Bluegrass-- Differences
Old Timey has evolved into such diverse new roots as the Holy Modal Rounders and Wayne Henderson's extention of blues. A recent series of recordings by Otis Taylor challanges the White Only srangle hold on the music. Rugby
where the music comes from became a musical dynamo because of the rail road (like in England.) Then the music followed the rails in Pullman Cars and on the footplate and in the cabose. Old Timey turns up all over the place musicly because the rails, mills, ships and mines were connected. Heard some in Hull, Scotland and Belfast in the sixties.
Hitched a ride in Pete car over Monarch Pass and we never did get sung out.
