whiskey for breakfast
The young musician was playing an especially haunting tune. The blacksmith's assistant, working just to the right said, "I can play that tune, it's Whiskey for Breakfast." I'll take his word for that. Garfield Farm Museum is a large operation, lots of livestock, barns and outbuildings, gardens and the Inn which is a museum house. All this is run with only two full-time employees and as you can imagine, an army of volunteers. Some of the volunteers commit to daily tasks, and some volunteer for special occassions. The music was very lovely and simple... old tunes performed using only two instruments. It's a very clean sound. Simply lovely.
