avatar2I am a librarian and songwriter who also likes to dabble in musicological research.  What I write is acoustic music, somewhat country, somewhat old-time.  I am interested in music mainly from very early, pre-1600; also very new music written by living composers and all kinds of vernacular music: Blues, Bluegrass, Old-Time.  On this blog I will write about all of these things.

Also, aside from eight years in New York City, I have spent my entire life in the South, born in Shreveport, Louisiana, and living in Nashville for the last nearly 30 years.  I will sometimes write about Southern literature and other issues related to history or culture of this wonderful region, the South.
