Bedubya Who are you related to? Any Musicians? (103* d) RE: Who are you related to? Any Musicians? 07 Apr 01


Like several others who have contributed to this thread, I am not related to anyone of import, but the wife is. Seems she's fourth or fifth cousin to Hoagy Carmichael. All the older folks in her family tell stories of all-night jam sessions they remember from their childhoods. Seems that Hoagy didn't have a monopoly on musical talent in the family. There were enough musical uncles and cousins and such that any family gathering was apt to turn into a jam session with Hoagy as just one of the gang.

Unfortunately, the wife inherited just barely enough of the family trait to be a fairly competent bodhrani. Been trying to teach her a F chord for ten years to no avail.

Cheers,

bwl
