Country guitar, Folk guitar, and blues guitar and Hugh Corbin

Today I am off to teach some difference, or differences, between the styles of country guitar, folk guitar, and blues guitar.  That’s a bit tricky, because I have my own style, which is an eclectic mix.  So we will see what happens.  It is not my own class, but a world music class taught by Professor Emma Zevik.  If anything interesting happens, I may remember to note it later.

The program last night with Hugh Corbin was a fine success.  Good crowd, terrific response.  Hugh reads just like he did twenty years ago, and simply fills the room with passion, energy, and humor.  And protest, since he knows how to read that sort of poem. Nelle found his reading of Bob Dylan’s lyrics to Masters of War (I strummed a background, while Hugh declaimed the words) to be as effectively condemnatory today as it was so many years ago when Dylan first sang the song.

The program was videotaped, so hopefully some who missed it will still get a chance to see it.  Hugh and his wife Maris will return to Barbados in a few days.

    Stumbled on this Nov 25/2021. Memory recalled. The Corbins were nice people. Best to you both, enjoyed the other items you wrote on this site.
