GUEST,Pete Peterson Info: Harry C. Browne (11) RE: Harry C. Browne 18 Aug 05


Hi Bob,
Too long since we've made music together! I still have tapes from the old Labor Day parties when you would come, classical banjo in hand, and get my mother to sight read piano rags. . . good times! We're good-- hope maybe you'll get to one of OUR parties and I've filed your email!

I've learned more about Browne via the British Archive of Country Music which has released a CD of 20 of his songs, many of which are new both to me and Tim Woodbridge, my source for the tape which I referred to in my original post. He was a veteran of the Spanish-American War, went on to a career as a minstrel entertainer (about 1915-1922, just before Fiddling John Carson started) and then after a time working for Columbia Records, became a high official in the Christian Science church. I wish I could go on to say that he died of untreated appendicitis, but it isn't true.

PETE
