New Video and Museum Exhibit

Well gang, our video has been picked up by MTV Latin America, and we think it turned out to be a pretty fun video.  Watch as we shoot stuff with Potato Guns and play Mama’s Fried Potatoes.   And in case you were wondering, I think she does make the best Fried Potatoes in the whole wide world.

Potato Guns Yeah!

Click the picture and watch the video.

The Folk Traditions museum at the Center for Folk Traditions by Traditional Arts Indiana has an exhibit right now on our family.  Scroll down to see some pictures that are included in the exhibit.  It is all interactive, so you can see some actual instruments, listen to interviews and music, read lyrics, and look at pictures.  What an honor for us!  If you find yourself in Southern Indiana check it out, if you can’t make the trip to the hills of Brown County, IN then go to the website here or here for more details.

We were playing the Persimmon Song in this pic.

Buckets and Washboards are serious instruments that make killer percussion sounds - it is a long standing tradition.

Here is a pic from the road that they use in the museum.  Thomas Richardson took all of fun pics, and he made the field recordings for the exhibit.
