On Christmas Eve everything I had in this world burnt down and it’s all mostly gone. It is a strange feeling to watch your home burn down and you cannot do anything except to watch it burn, burn down. I want to thank all the friends who I know and who I don’t know who have helped me and my roommate. Everyone in the music world has come to my aide with kind comments, gifts that are beyond what my heart can handle at times. A man who I don’t know is sending me by UPS a 1973 Martin-D28. How does one say think you to this? I don’t know but I tried. I am alive and so is my roommate and the cats so I am starting the new year I guess with a fresh start as they say, here we go…..

Gig-mobile- Goes up hill, has brakes downhill, goes forward (maybe not reverse), maybe has heat. Once when Pete Seeger and I were out in the woods working I told him I had a new/old gig-mobile. And he just looked at me and asked me what a gig-mobile was? Having never having to explain it I came up with the above list, sore of list. He then told me Woody bought a Ford and did make one payment. He and Woody drove to the West coast with it. The way Pete put it, it did use a lot of oil. There was a posting somewhere out in the net world where us musicians put our stories about not only our gig-mobiles but how did we get to the gigs. The stories were funny, and downright strange. One has to scratch your head and say, no way, well guess what?
This month I will be heading to TN. to the first WoodSongs gathering. I will post more information soon about what Michael Johnathon is doing. Should be fun! Still Pickin' Bill Hudson
This next Weekend I will be at The Appalachian South Folklife Center for the 50th year celebration July 18-19. This center was started by the American poet Don West and his wife Connie. Their daughter Heady West wrote the tune, 500 Miles. Back in 1979 I was the director of that year’s festival. Should be loads of fun and I will get to see my friend Michael Johnathon who is laying on Sunday.
