REMEMBERING

THE OLD DAYS

Yes, Yes, Yes. The scene certainly goes through changes. These are some of our memories of the Bluegrass and Old-timey scene in the 1970's. I am happy to report that the scene seems to be in an up cycle in the new mileniun.

A TYPICAL SEASON AT THE GOOD COFFEE HOUSE
(Circa 1977)

STILL GOING STRONG

KATE AND LOU ran a Coffee House in Haines Falls, NY called Murphy's House
around 1975 for a couple of seasons. Murphy's House was in an old 26 bedroom hotel
that was located on an abandoned rail path in the woods that took vacationers up to the Mountainhouse in North Lake in the early 1900's. A typical schedule at the coffee house would feature wonderful New York musicians like Artie Traum, Barry Mitterhoff then of THE BOTTLE HILL BOYS and Jerry Oland who played with WHEEL HOSS and the ARM BROTHERS. Here is a flyer from August 1975.

WELL, IT DOESN"T REALLY MATTER WHO WINS THE CONTEST.....HA HA HA

EVERYBODY WANTED TO WIN!

This Results tally of a 1970's contest shows
a vibrant scene with lots and lots of bands.

THE WONDERBEANS finished fourth in the finals but finished
second in the elimination round, 1 point behind the top spot.
I remember that set like it was yesterday, Oh what FUN!
