Dawn sings with Terry and Dawson, and Don helps when Dawson is busy. They play at nursing homes, mostly, and bring some joy with their banter along with the beautiful music. I’m an old guy so I think the good old days were better. The kids who don’t experience Two Juhls and my Gem are really missing out. I know our oldest kid was a music snob like I was. We’ve both grown to appreciate a broad range of styles.
Dawn has been finding new songs through her gigs at the homes and funerals. And there have been some real gems. I hope I can figure out how to record and post them here this winter.
But for now there are two songs that go through my head when she leaves to spread the beauty of her gift (part of the gift is the hard work she puts into utilizing that gift).
I’m a white guy so I start with this. I will post other versions following the same path I took, introduced to real American music through those poor souls born in the land of bad teeth.
