I talked to a gentleman who said several years ago he was listening to Paul Franklin on steel with a band at the Preston hotel in Nashville. Barbara was in the audience and Paul had Barbara sit in with the band and play about four songs on steel.

And likely, if you had stopped her right there and said "what are you doing right there?" she would've clocked you with her bar and chased you out of the building.

She had a great teacher at a very early age, great start for her. She had the talent to proceed.
