Grenada... I had a good friend, Eric, who was also in that area back then.

Me, I was just a Millrat back in those days... Cartersville Spinning for almost ten years until they shut down, 1983-1991.

Thanks for having a listen, Reef... as for Guthrie, besides Rick Edwards and Henry Parker's vast knowledge of those folk tunes, a more recent picker named Hermell, retired military, has been showing up at the coffeeshop on Broadway. Hermell sings those Guthrie, Phil Ochs, Pete Seger, David Blue... I call him a folklorist in that he treats the songs, or sing them, with his Vermont accent snipped of the southern drawl, but good clear, well done versions of the classics.
