One Last Mike Seeger Thing...

Well, I can't guarantee that, but the Smithsonian Folkways just posted a clip of Mike Seeger talking about his childhood and his early musical training (Charlie Byrd, following Earl Scruggs around).

I love the way Seeger says that his parents would get them to hurry up to get ready for bed by "Get Along Home, Cindy" because if they didn't get to bed quickly, the music would stop. I do that with reading with Little Boy Blue with sporadic success -- I should totally try music instead.
