New Momma Don’t ‘Low Newsletter Online

Momma Don't 'Low header.  Click to see a description and signup sheet.In August, 2014, we started the Momma Don’t Low(tm) newsletter to provided updates, news, and links to tip articles to readers of our music sites, which have expanded to include:

  •, a site dedicated to promoting acoustic and traditional music, plus the history and traditions of the American heartland, especially along the National Road.
  •, celebrating America’s musical tributes to trains and the folks that drive or ride them
  •, resources for vintage sax owners and indie Christian musicians
  •, buyer’s guides explaining what to look for in various classes of musical instruments
  •, this site (but you knew that).

But throughout 2016, we have been forced to migrate all of those sites and make many other changes and upgrades, resulting in a big gap since the last newsletter (November, 2015). The October, 2016 newsletter is now available. We don’t usually post permanent links, except to subscribers, but it’s been such a long time since we had a newsletter out, we figured we’d make an exception for this month’s newsletter.

Topics addressed include:

  • Links to free online resources for independent and traditional musicians
  • Links to reviews of unusual or hard-to-find instruments, especially banjos
  • New banjo lessons and tab postings
  • Description of new articles in the works, including diagrams about the making of LPs in the mid-1960s and CDs in the mid-1980s.
