"...and that's all I need!"

I have been told by a very good authority I need the following things:

  • A PINCUSHION
  • A SOAPDISH
  • AND A POTTERY FROG

"and that's all I need...."

When I first came to the bay area I spent a long time on Telegraph Ave. listening to Michael Masley making some of the most beautiful music I'd ever heard (he describes it as "outside the lunatic mainstream") on his hammered dulcimer. If I had to classify it I'd call it "new age" or world music but he calls it "East Bayou Caljun Afro-Celtic West Berkeley Freeworld music". I bought the cassette tape of his music he was selling but the tape has long since turned to mush and it wasn't until today that I found him on the web. I'll be buying his music again, this time on CD. Hopefully it will never turn to mush. Posted by thom at February 7, 2003 12:47 PM
