My name is Erica Duarte - I work for a small non-profit, the Council of Americana Roots Music, we produce a public radio & television program called Jammin at Hippie Jack's.  Paul McCoy at Humanities TN gave me your name as he thought you would be a great help to us as we endeavor to incorporate more humanities themes into our multimedia work.  I'm currently writing a grant to the NEH to develop a new Jammin at Hippie Jack's "Off the Road" series to explore humanities themes (the merging and converging of generations and cultures; national, ethnic, and international identity), our aim is to illuminate the historical and multi-cultural elements of Americana music.  With this grant we would be able to compensate you for your time.  If you would like to discuss this project in more detail please contact me - (931) 445-2072 or

Thank you

I was turned on to Jimmie Rodgers back in high school around 1960 when, somewhat inexplicably, some of my R&B-loving pals loaned me an album. I was just learning guitar and Jimmie's technique sounded doable. I have been a fan ever since, and heard his influence -- for instance, in the guitar signatures of country artists like Ernest Tubb and Merle Haggard.

Now I'm learning so much more as I read "Meeting Jimmie Rodgers." Thanks Barry for the book (which resonates nicely with my memories of artists I heard at Newport in 1963 and 1964) and for your edifying columns in WSJ.
