This is a documentary I found on YT that impressed the heck out of me....which really takes some doing; not because I'm overly critical, but because I am extremely sensitive to motive.  However, I'll turn down my BS sensor for now and stick my proboscis out a wee bit and say......This 26 minute documentary moved me, and it is a fine example of grassroots American effort.  I hope you like it as well, and don't miss the credits...it's halarious.   

 

Cheers

the Woodsongs and the Songs of the Mountains airs here every Sunday now. Mark Oconnor was on last week hocking the release of his third method book. Its my generations version of the Lawrence Welk show for hillbillies! lol.
