We were entertained last evening in our fourth of July dinner by a gentleman who has been entertaining for his whole life. Although I had heard him as part of a group and as our bango player, turned out he was one of many who stood up in the early seventies as the New Christy Minstrels.
Deep base voice, multi generational music, fun with homemade instruments including my favorite, the cowbell. It was a sing along par excellence with humor, reminiscense of a long singing career, some genuine gospel music reflecting his southern roots.
He has one of the most beautiful Santa beards also.
