My two boys. Shep, the one with the mandolin, left us five years ago, but Riley is still enjoying the "Life of Riley." Love them both.
Does anyone have stories, memories, or photos from Mt View and the Ozark Folk Center from the 1970s? I spent many summers going to Mt View right after the Folk Center opened. I only lived about an hour and half away and my family and I spent a good amount of time there on vacation. I remember the first dulcimer shop McSpadden opened before he moved into the current location. Those memories from that period are still so vivid to me, but I don't have a single photo from that era. I heard Jimmy Driftwood, Bookmiller Shannon, Aunt Ollie Gilbert, Floyd Holland...those original performers were so fascinating. And, of course, the dulcimer came into my life because of those trips. Can't find a thing on youtube from those early years, and it would sure make a great documentary. Anyway, I would love to hear any experiences you folks might have had way back then.
