When Mike Seeger found me, he asked if I would like to play again, I told him it had been my heart's desire to put my old songs on records so the younger generation could learn them if they wanted to. When I quit before, my wife thought it more honorable to work in the mines at hard manual labor than to play music. So I let a friend of mine have my banjo. He was a single man then, and when I retired from the mines and went back to get my banjo back 25 years later he was a grandfather.
