Rabbit Muse (born Lewis Anderson Muse) joined the uke-mad world in 1908 on May 11. The son of a squeezebox-totin' momma and an ivory-ticklin', banjo-pluckin' poppa, Rabbit's blood nearly boiled to chop some uke! When the Rabbit was still a bunny, the Virginia fields were more than just places for a boy to Hunt Some Corn--a tune he covers on his LP, 'Sixty Minute Man' (Outlet Records, 1977). No indeed . . . those were the fields, streams, and streets of his musical blues. He picked up the uke at age twelve after a short hop in his father's tenor-banjo footsteps, and the rest, as they say . . . .

Mike Joyce has said of Rabbit:
"His songs are short, his touch gentle, and his voice lighthearted. Rabbit Muse doesn't play the blues, Jazz, Pop or Folk, he plays them all and usually at the same time. Rabbit has fashioned from a number of styles and traditions an engaging approach to American Music in which Arthur Godfrey meets Cab Calloway and Frank Sinatra finds eternal happiness with Mississippi John Hurt."

What better bunkmate can you find? None, I think, for there is probably no better guide to the backwoods uke, the hills, the vales, and the fresh--but blue--musical vista of Franklin County, Virginia.
