Jack Norton and Friends

Here's an article about neo-hobo uke player Jack Norton and one of his (apparently several) groups, "The Mullet River Boys". He also is ringleader of "The Wizard Oil Vaudeville Company". The Jack Norton website has lyrics and tabs to what looks to be over 100 songs, most written by Jack, but a few chestnuts, too. (I remember this ditty from an old Lawrence Welk album my mom had. Can't remember the melody on the verse, tho'.)

Sounds like an interesting guy, but I doubt his sanity. Not because he's only 24 yet says he went to middle school with Tiny Tim, but because he says the banjo is cooler than the uke. Link
