H has set up a blue-grass band called Three Dollar Tag. I went to see them the other day. H is the front man. They have a guy who plays dobro and banjo, H and his friend Pete playing guitar, and a really good fiddler who has stood up with Fairport. I am obviously biased but I think they are good. H knows how to put together a good set, with crowd-pleasing songs, and it is very lively.
As well as guitar H plays a zydeco necktie from Hobgoblin in Birmingham.
The Washboard tie is almost certainly the greatest and most versatile of all percussion clothing, Just clip the tie to your shirt and put on the provided playing thimbles to astound your friends with fantastic rhythm! With the Wasboard tie in your wardrobe you are prepared for any situation in which rhythmic accompaniment is required!
He carries it in a big case, and he brings the case on stage and elaborately opens it, and everyone is wondering what he is going to play, and then he puts this tie on, and two silver thimbles, and plays it during an instrumental. Everyone was laughing.
