Golden Memories of The Blackwoods
If you're ready to book one of our artists, we're here to help. We love history, too. Enjoy these golden memories.
"History is an intricate part of who we are, where we have been, and where we are headed. Without history being documented in videos, pictures, and written documents we may never have known who Mozart was, or even the great works of Shakespeare. History is the written record of who we are, and this is a page dedicated to the history of our artist in music and even humor. Enjoy taking a walk back to the years before the internet and cell phones, when recording was done on reel to reel tape and there was no such thing as a loop or Auto-Tune. You either played it over and over or sang it over and over until it was perfect or it was not recorded. Enjoy a look back........"
