Yes, there really is a Hobos Convention, held each year on the second weekend in August in Britt, Iowa- been doing it since 1900.
And I am commemorating it, celebrating these free spirits!
Guess there's a bit of the non-comformist in me...you think, lol?
I used to play at least one song for it each year, but it started to slip my mind.
And now I have realized I can do a whole show on it...several shows in fact.
I'll have Rock, Country, Blues, Jazz, Folk and maybe something else in this concluding chapter.
A smorgasbord of Music- and from some unexpected sources, so be prepared and stay on your toes.
Including the BEST song ever in my opinion, about the friendship, the brotherhood in their chosen lifestyle between these mavericks.
And finally, a wonderful recipe for their legendary Mulligan Stew:
Take a large bowl, fill it with sunshine.
Add a bit of patience, faith and kindness.
Sift a cup of romance with a teaspoon of sympathy, a teaspoon of forgiveness, moisten with a teardrop, adding tolerance, friendship along with ambition.
Mix well with stardust, fold in imagination, place in a heavenly blue pan, bake well with the light of God's candle.
Serve every day and it will bring you a mulligan of Happiness.
Enjoy...the Music and the Stew!
Here are your choice of links to sit down brother, and have a cup of Joe and a plate of Mulligan, to Soundcloud or Podomatic, at Mike Pell Rockollections:
By the way, for a trippy effect at Podomatic listen in Full-Screen, look for it, it's there...and it's cool:
