Bedubya Great High Wind (That Blew the Low Post Down) (8) RE: Great High Wind That Blew 19 Apr 01


Wow! from me too!

I learned "The Great High Wind" off of the Booger Hole Revival album in about 1980. The band was travelling through Jacksonville, Florida when their VW bus broke down. They happened to wind up in my friend Glen's VW garage for repairs. When they found that Glen played in a bluegrass band, the Booger Hole folks gave him a copy of their album. He hated it! Not hardcore 'grass enough. He gave it to me and I fell in love with it. Learned half the songs on it. The way they mixed Celtic, swing, and bluegrass made a permanent impression. I would list that album as among the five most influential in my on musical development. Whatever happened to them? I heard that they changed their name, but that was years ago too.
