Buffalo Skinners, performed by Raphael Boguslav

The third video on my YouTube channel is from an album released in 1956. Raphael Boguslav sang and played guitar, mandolin and banjo on the album Songs From A Village Garret, the village, of course, being Greenwich Village. He recorded a set of folk songs, some from the British Isles and others from the United States. Buffalo Skinners is a 19th Century American folk song, recorded most famously by Woody Guthrie.

There is no trace of Raphael Boguslav's music on the Internet, so I'm going to put some of his songs up on my YouTube channel. I will also share them here when I finish them. Special thanks to Peregrin who had the software that could change my old fashioned .mpg file to the newer style that iMovie can read.

Let me know what you think.

WOW! Just beautiful - it sure brought back memories of my folkie days and the calligraphy workshop with Ray. When the day was winding down, we would bring out the goodies, including bottles of wine and he sang a few songs. Most of us were of "that" generation and sang along - the later in the evening, the louder we got. I can't say we stayed in tune but we sure had a lot of fun. He will be missed.

I love the songs from that album and I'll be posting most to my You Tube account in the near future.
