Poly-wolly-doodle all day

I love this video. Occasionally I go back for another dose of it. That’s Bashful Brother Oswald singing and playing guitar. Cathy Barton Para is the clawhammer player (one of my fave players). I don’t know who the other guitar picker is. It’s backstage at the Opry in Nashville. There was a lot of joy going on at that particular place and time.

Going to Louisiana for to see my Suzianna
Polly-Wally-Doodle add day.



  1. I took some banjo classes from Cathy Barton Para, the banjo player in the video. Of course this was much later on. Wonderful player and person.

  2. Oh my goodness!! Does this old tune bring back memories!! I was “home-schooled” during kindergarten years and every morning from 9:15-9:30 listened to “Kindergarten on the Air.” on the radio. I have to think this must have been played an awful lot as I know some of the words and definitely know the tune–.”Fare the well”– must have been like a “sign-off”! Thanks Eugene for this fun memory!!
    I was actually brought up in a classical music setting…so knew my parents did not listen to this!! I will return to the video now and again.. I love it, too!!

Have your say...
