Traces Posted January 29 Share Posted January 29 "It was just so amazing to us that I could play one part and Willie could play another and together we had a song. We'd look at each other and our eyes would light up. Playing music made us realize that there was something bigger out there, something more than human life." ---- Bobbie Nelson talks about how she and her brother Willie learned to play music in Abbott, Texas, back in the 1930s, as quoted by Michael Corcoran in his great book "All Over the Map: True Heroes of Texas Music," 2017. Super interesting book. Highly recommended. Shown here: Bobbie and Willie a few years later. Photographer unknown. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
