Clarence Ashley: The Cukoo

To bad Gwen Foster wasn't still around when Clarence was "Rediscovered" in the 1960s. Clarence was forgotten for more than 30 years, they manage to find him, they asked him to play Coocoo, he refused, because it had to be perfect. He worked on it for a long time until he had it down perfect again. I'm glad somebody got it on video, definitely a great moment in AMerican music.
