Fiction and Truth
As far as I know, my blog is the only physician bluegrass fiction writer’s weblog on the net. If there is another, I hope folks will let me know.
I recently learned there is a English Professor bluegrass blog out there, and I reckon it might be the only one of those too. Only difference is instead of tall tales, he is writing about the facts.
I haven’t known anybody from above the Mason Dixon Line to have as much interest in the South since Sherman cruised through Atlanta a few years back. Lord have mercy, an English Professor of all people, in an extensive study of the Sandhills indigenous population, has stumbled upon the bluegrass circle of Dr. Bibey, Moose Dooley, Darrell, and the rest of the gang. I think he found us through my cousin from Pecan Grove, N.C. (Mama’s side of the family six times removed.)
I don’t know exactly what sparked all this- maybe he is doing a research paper or something, but I checked out his blog, and it is for real. As a matter of fact, I don’t think any college English professor has ever figured out as much about our music as this man. His blog can be accessed at Ted Lehmann’s Bluegrass, Books, and Brainstorms, and I found it very authentic.
I believe he is a Professor too. I diagrammed out some of his sentences and as opposed to country doctor fractured syntax and garbled grammar, they are spot on, as best I can tell.
Chech him out on my blogroll. His is the finest English Professor Bluegrass Blog in the history of the free world.
