Galen was playing washtub bass with the Old Memories group and after the last performance of the day a woman came up to talk to him about how he got such good sound out of a washtub. People do this all the time, but what made this time different was that the woman was in Galen's high school graduation class in in small Illinois town way back in 1961. It took them a minute or two before they recognized each other since neither expected to run into the other at the Ozark Folk Center in Arkansas. I emailed the photo and story to the Stark County News in Toulon, IL and they will be in the newspaper in the next week or two.
