Clearly the past has advanced forward to the present. geek

And ray says: "Too bad he doesn't actually play piano in this tune...."

Seriously ray? You think Willie needs to play that piano part. Rolling Eyes

Anyways, it's clear that Willie is not one of those oldsters that lives in the past. Cool

You might say this one is backward-looking (in a good way), but it might not be a good fit for the "folk" thread.

Never let it be said that Willie can't be subtle and introspective:

It's not unusual for Californanites to mistake Canada for Minnesota. This misconception still offends some Canadians, but Minnesotans are used to it.

Willie explains about the bars. Smile drunken

Willie looks kind of scarey, but don't worry, he wouldn't hurt you--he just lived a bit too fast and too hard.

Of course, top tone docs and most musos maintain Michigan/Illinois be far ahead of Minnesota in the muso-stakes. Minnesota might be more of a minor leaguer, like a Milwaukee

Surely Madison Wisconsin deserves credit for giving birth to Tracy Nelson, but I believe her influences emanated mostly from Nashville.

Dave Ray frequently ventured into Wisconsin's mosquito infested scrub woodlands, and even set up a recording studio thee for a time.

And Ray even recorded his final album with some very good Milwaukee German pickers called "The 6L6 Band."

Nonetheless, my general impression of our neighbor to the East is that they were mostly wannabe Dinkytown folkies doing KR&G impersonations:

By way of full disclosure, the pinhed confesses that he has previously mis-identified Robert "One-Man" as a Minnesotan. Embarassed

Speaking of the 6L6 Band (the good one--not the Boston one), this is surely Milwaukee's best:

Should "Lake Street Dive" be showcased on this thread, or do they belong elsewhere (since they met at the New England Conservatory of Music?).

Just the fact that they were founded by a person named Mike Olsen means the group must be Minnesotan.

My recollection of Lake Street is that it used to be nothing but dives, but I'd have thought it would cleaned up by now, like the lower loop was. Shocked

They tell me that Lake Street Dive might be making it semi-big because of this video:

If it's unplugged, does that make it folk? scratch

I didn't think so, either (they're graduates of the New England Conservatory of Music, after all).

Then again, Pete Seeger almost graduated from Berkley (I think he dropped out because a degree would have ruined his folk-cred).

Gorden Anderson has this to say about the movie on Youtube:

"See those basement stairs that look so new? They are new, I helped build them, and there was a problem mounting them to this set we built so I did not have time to apply the aging paint. What looked like an old house was built in a warehouse in Eden Prairie. That is also on the dance floor about 3 rows back - it was sooo much fun, we wanted it to go and on and get bigger and bigger - yet we did not get to keep it going since - well for the whole inside story see my book about my life - for sale at k-ndle yet so secret people whop read it tend to turn up dead; really there is too many coincidence and as He said "JUST WHEN U THOUGHT U WERE SAFE!" THE KEEPERS OF SECRETS strike.-elp - i need resuce in Minnesota.... yet there will be danger for anyone who tries to find me. just like in the movies!"

When I was almost across the NC/SC border, I heard this picker on the radio.



I thought his name sounded familiar (how many guys are there name "Camile?"  Suspect ).

Wiki says this:

"In 1998, between Radiators tours, Baudoin joined a side project, The Back Porch Rockers, with Dave "Snaker" Ray, Tony Glover and Reggie Scanlan. This group released a single album called By the Water."
That's it--I thought he was a French voyageur from the Source of the Mississippi, but he's really from the other end of the river.
