Here is one of our Hokum Scorcher's recordings called Combo Waltz. I am playing the washboard and cups and Lou Reimuller is playing the National guitar, harmonica and kazoo. This song is based on a Memphis Jugband song from the late 20s, early 30s.
Hanging in my kitchen: a wonderful print of an original scratchboard drawing of a cat with a crown by my dear friend, artist Ruth Farrall. Ruth, you are the best. This cat says it all. Look at those eyes.
