Brownie McGhee ... says that after the gig all the important folk people came over and told him that he had to move to New York because "they didn't have any blues singers up there; that Josh White was the only one, and he'd gone white." McGhee laughingly adds that when he got to New York and met Josh, "when i saw how much money he was making, I said, 'Hey, show me how to go white too!''" - from Society Blues, Elijah Wale

Dave McCarn Interview
« on: December 29, 2011, 03:26:01 PM »
Hello all,

Does anyone know where I can find the Mike Seeger interview with Dave McCarn that he did in Stanley, NC. '61?

Any help much appreciated.

Craig.

Hi Craig:

I checked the bibliography in Linthead Stomp, but there's nothing listed by Mike Seeger. It's possible that he interviewed him, but it was never published solely as an "interview." It might have been included in a different or broader piece of writing--under a different title, or possibly parts or info from the interview were/was used for liner notes, etc. Why not try contacting Patrick Huber? He should know.

It looks like 27 of the articles that appeared in the JEMF Quarterly (John Edwards Memorial Foundation Quarterly--the text that the OCLC/WordCat link leads to) has been reprinted in a single volume. Here's the Amazon link:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0810848937/ref=nosim/thegratefulde-20

and the OCLC link:

http://www.worldcat.org/title/exploring-roots-music-twenty-years-of-the-jemf-quarterly/oclc/52595234&referer=brief_results

I'll be able to get it from the UW library sometime next week. After I actually see it, I'll report back regarding the Dave McCarn article--it may or may not be included.

The UW does have the JEMF Quarterly in its collection, but I'd have to get down there and into the Auxiliary Stacks to actually eyeball it in the flesh. We'll see how things go.

Craig, where did you see the reference to the 1961 interview?

Hi Andrew:

Speaking for myself, I saw it mentioned several times on  the web when I tried to run down further information, but I didn't get as far as the original source. I borrowed Music From The True Vine from the library, so I don't have it at hand to dig through.

I would assume at some point his collected materials will be gone through, organized and archived. But until that happens, probably the best thing to do is to try to go through the "Contact" link at his website:

http://mikeseeger.info/index.html

One might also contact Bill Malone or Ray Allen as they probably had access to Mike Seeger's materials.

I just went through the table of contents and it appears that the Dave McCarn article is not included in Exploring Roots Music. However, it does look like an excellent collection of writings.
