Well I had started that about the age of twelve... see my mother had a guitar, my father made her a present of a guitar, and he taught her a few chords, but I first started on a little outfit I made with a cigar box... I made a guitar with a cigar box, had peg keys, bored holes in the head, and I had uh... the strings graduated from fishing twine down on to thread - Johnny St. Cyr, guitarist for the Jelly Roll Morton's Red Hot Peppers in an interview with Alan Lomax on how he learned to play guitar

The Todalo Shakers Concert in Bellingham
« on: March 06, 2010, 12:15:23 PM »
======================================================================
Tuesday, March 16th
The Todalo Shakers complete their first ever northwest tour with a concert at the Roeder Home in Bellingham, Washington.  This highly respected but seldom seen band specializes in the party music of the 1920s, especially jug band, blues, and rags and have played most often at Berkeley's Freight and Salvage.  Eric & Suzy Thompson, Frannie Leopold, and WB Reid have been Todalo Shaking since their first CD came out in 1999, and they're gathering in Seattle to make a new recording.  This concert will feature many brand new songs for the project.   Fiddle, mandolin, guitar, banjo-guitar, and bowed bass, and everyone sings. 
7:30 pm, $8-$12 sliding scale, Roeder Home, 2600 Sunset Drive, Bellingham. 
See http://www.friendsoftheroederhome.org/ for all the info
