COSETTE 'COZY' HEMEN
Knuckles Duff And His Pick-Up Truck
Knuckles Duff and his Pick-Up Truck
This CD is a single song DJ copy of a song written by South Dakotan writer Cosette Hemen. It was a kind of challenge, she attends the annual Old Time Music Festival in LeMars, Iowa, and being the good songwriter she is, decided to enter the songwriting contest. The 'topic' she drew to write about is the name of the song, "Knuckles Duff And His Pick-Up Truck." It's all a very interesting story, Mr. Duff is a very successful man who makes his home in Newport Beach, California. He was born and raised in Iowa, however, and likes to come back to help-out at the LeMars Festival, doing very important Emcee chores. He does them well, and when his nick-name came together with a down-home pick-up truck, it was a natural for Cosette to write the song about him. As it turned out, it's a very complete story about Knuckles Duff and his experiences with his pick-up truck, and how he heroically saved the day in an interesting festival situation. Cosette played guitar and sang the lead, and Rick Anderson added some fine harmonica licks to the project, and recorded it at his R & H Studio. Hopefully this 'single' recording will lead to others, perhaps even a full CD of songs chock full of upper Midwest experiences like Bob Duff's pick-up truck.
