>Today’s YouTube Concert is a special treat.
Back in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, I was part of a traveling folk group called the Original Milam Extended Family Band. We played mostly “old-timey” music, which is to say we were purists for the “old-timey” forms and “old-timey” traditions. We played original versions of unoriginal songs. We had a string of minor hits in 1979 and the #3 Americana smash “Velcro (What Kinda Boots Are Those, Lady).”
As you might recall, our band broke up in 1982 for many reasons, including but not limited to:
–The 1982 Preakness
–Above ground swimming pools
Nearly thirty years later, the surviving members of the Original Milam Extended Family Band have (mostly) buried the hatchet. We even got together just yesterday to sing a new song, just like the old songs. And that’s today’s YouTube Concert.
