Yodeling Songs Of Her Youth At Rock City

Music bridges many differences, this touching video is a prime example. It is also an uncanny example of how sometimes life imitates art as this impromptu occurrence is a doppelgänger  for the 1929's movie short featuring Jimmie Rodgers  yodeling this same song to an elderly lady.

We captured this moment in Rock City Gardens over the Memorial Day weekend; it was an impromptu trip for us, taken to avoid the radioactive jet stream fallout from May's recent recriticality in Fukushima.

The musicians in the video are the New Binkley Brothers; the song is "Waiting For A Train" by the legendary Jimmie Rodgers.   After watching the video above, compare it to 1929 short shown below.
