T:Bill Staatz's Shottis,
% NFF Book 2007
S:collected from Bill Staatz, Toowoomba, Qld
S:collected by Mark Schuster and Maria Zann
N:Hello and happy New year Ray,
N:Yes - I collected both Bill Hohn's and Bill Staatz's tunes.  Both were
N:great players (on mainly double and triple row accordions).  Bill
N:Staatz hailed from the Lockyer (where he had an equally talented
N:brother, Alf).  For many years Bill worked at the Southern Crocc
N:Foundry in Toowoomba.  I have many tapes of both Alf, but less so Bill.
N:They had many great old dance tunes.  Bill Hohn's playing was nothing
N:short of briiliant - terrific rhythm and great cross-rowing with use of
N:chords.  His daughters often joined on violin and guitar.  Many locals
N:still regard him as a wonderful player. Mark Schuster, Jan 07.
O:Australia, Qld, Toowoomba
