Country Dave Ryerson

Country Dave Ryerson and I were sitting chatting one afternoon and the subject of yodeling came up - don't ask me how - anyway, the upshot of that was that I met him a few days later down on the Inner Harbour Causeway to record him doing a little of what he calls "basic" yodeling. It's a fascinating vocal skill that is seldom heard any more. The video below is a song made famous by Jimmy Rogers, "When It's Peach Pickin' Time in Georgia", sung by Country Dave Ryerson. Country Dave is another veteran on the causeway artists' roster, having entertained Victorians as well as visitors to our city for over twenty years. As his nickname implies, he specializes in country and western music and it's always a pleasure to hear him.
