“We loosened our belts and made our way back to the room with all those shelves and counters. The back corner is where the music happens. The Galley Nippers old-time string band from nearby Lebanon and Carthage, Tennessee, were warmed up and ready to perform, first just for us, then after a brief break, for a „live radio audience who were out there listening in surrounding towns in Tennessee and southern Kentucky. ........ Buddy dressed in his turn-of-the-century clothes, shoes, and hat. A vision to be sure! Buddy brought along his wife, Lisa Ingram, who handled vocals and washtub bass--also old-time washboard with horns and a cowbell or two. Her black dress, hat, and shoes were also from a time long, long ago. Brian Vollmer played fiddle, and Josh Smith played guitar. Brian and Josh helped out on vocals and they, too, were dressed for the occasion. The Galley Nippers are one terrific old-time band. Each member has researched the history of this fascinating genre.”
