In the early seventies, Hampshire College was a hot bed of old-time music activism - most of which could be attributed to the cultural factors that underpin this joke from the period:
A visiting professor notices a Hampshire student entering class in mid-lecture. Not only is the student late, he's wearing only one shoe.
Her curiosity piqued, the professor stops the presentation to ask, "Did you lose a shoe?"
The student answers, "Nope. I found one. Would you like to buy some dope?"
Another driving force was the Highwoods String Band. This seminal old-time band played on or near the Hampshire campus several times each year. They were a huge influence on those of us learning to play music.
This duet is based on the Highwoods recording from the album of the same name.
