There's been a lot of conversation on the Topica oldtime list about the need for an online, searchable directory for old-time musicians.
David Lynch has a directory on his site at oldtimemusic.com but it is sorely out of date -- he has to make additions/updates manually and apparently doesn't have the time. (My entry is 10 years old and hasn't been updated despite numerous requests.)
Anyway, I decided to take a stab at this and you can see the result at http://sugarinthegourd.com/otdirectory -- please take a look, and if you're so inclined, add an entry for yourself. Or, once we get some more names in, look for neighbors to jam with: it's searchable by state, country, etc.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions on how I can make this work best for the OT community.
