Well, hidee, thar, younguns! This here's yer ole Pappi Copperhill. You know how ever' year 'bout this time the Tacoma Art Museum put theyselves up a big ole ice skatin' rink over to Tollefson Plaza? I'm tellin' you it's finer'n a can o' snuff, with all them little 'uns jess skatin' roun' in circles. Shoot, they's prolly ketchin' their death o' colds, but they's grinnin' like a mule eatin' briars. I have put together a bluegrass show fer the skatin ‘rink. The Weekly Volcano calls muh bluegrass and country produkshun "Rhythm & Ice: Down Home Holiday Hoedown." I jess call it a mess o' B-chord fiddle bands playin' in a tent, but that ain't a-whistlin' Dixie.
