Well I can't give you a hard time over this one, Since Rose was my Great Aunt
but they always thought of them selves as a "Western Swing band" and spent almost their entire
professional career based in California.

OK, as Thomas Jefferson would say "Now your talking out of your Derriere!

As Jefferson was from a wealthy family of "Slave owners" Highly educated who
became a lawyer and was a polymath who spoke five languages fluently and was deeply interested
in science, invention, architecture, religion and philosophy
also he founded the University of Virginia

Not very "Hillbilly" of him,now....

This may shred a lot of preconceived notions of what hillbillies are all about, but...

The Ozark dialect is a direct descendant of, and probably more closely related to Shakespearian English than our present day usage of American English. Early settlers from the British Isles brought their language, slang, music, fashions, and food styles with them. As England progressed "beyond" Elizabethan culture, these styles survived intact in the Ozarks.

So - Shakespeare's England and language survives in phrases like "vittles", "set a spell", "y'hear" and in the wild, fast played mandolin that's at the heart of great bluegrass music and the jam sessions that go on for hours. And of course in young romance; Romeo's Juliet was only 13 years old.

Here's an article written in 1964 all about it:
http://thelibrary.org/lochist/periodicals/wrv/v1/N11/Sp64e.htm
(And notice the other references at the bottom!)

Mitch Jayne, one of the Dillards (well, their bass playing friend) taught in one-room schoolhouses in Dent County and documented the use of Elizabethan English by his students. When Jayne asked a student to stay after school for some chore, the boy replied, No, Mr. Jayne, Id best haste home. Mother dont sanction us being dilatory.



He wrote a great book about his experiences, here it is:
http://www.amazon.com/Home-Grown-Stories-Fried-Lies/dp/1882467302

...and here's the thing that's gonna really blow yar brains. If all this is true, and it certainly does seem quite astonishingly reasonable, what this all means is that the Ozark Hillbilly dialect is ...

AN ISLANDER DIALECT. Because it comes directly, and is one of the few survivals of, the early British Isles.

Perfect example of a Hillbilly that is close to "HulaBilly" - more Urban, more Pop(ular), more Rockabilly than Hillbilly and Country music. unfortunately they never strayed into Hawaiian music territory.
Though The Hawaiian Hootenanny Boy did record with Rose Maddox

Hope you don't mind that I mention this here Otto:

Just after last years Tiki Oasis, Otto had heard that Rose Maddox was a relative of mine
and he contacted me to see if she would be interested in performing at this years Tiki Oasis
How cool would that have been!

Unfortunately she died in 1998 so I was pretty sure she wasn't going to make that gig
but if she was here today I think she would have gotten a real kick out of playing for
you Tiki Freaks......It's because of roots like this, that I so vehemently laud the importance
of honoring our past & history.

I would like to share the fact that The Mr is ready, willing and able to actually go to the Oasis this year! This man is Hulabilly all the way (well, in the sense that SOME of you are looking at this theme...I shan't go into THAT right now)

He is the only Hawaiian shirt wearing cowboy I know. He plays Ape's Jungle Jems around the Ranch for the horses; says they like it...makes them calm. He plays Martini Kings, Les Baxter,Martin Denny...etc...not only at his pool parties, but as he's out riding or driving his horses. IN his signature Hawaiian shirt! But he's a bad ass that no one ever F's with at the local bars...

But he's not a redneck hillbilly! And he's not strictly Tiki...But he likes the looks of this year's Oasis! So he's goin! Which means I get to go- YAY!!



Awwww! Aint that cute?



Shut the F up or your dead where ya stand.

What are the chances that no one else is waiting on a room to open up at the Crowne?? For a non party, golf course view room? Is that just cray? Or can I dream??
