      • The old time southern music is a lost art. They were so very raw in their talent. Please post more. I have a CD with various old southern singers and players that I’m trying to find videos for on You Tube. I hope I find them as they’re good, too.
        Great post …

      • Again thank you very much Izzy, and yes will do some more.. trying to be a little different and promote the lesser music, and for you will do so 😉
