Joan Ridgway, Yodeling Cowgirl

Plenty more of her on YouTube. But hardly any biographical info. What little there is seems to indicate that despite all cultural signifiers, she was Australian, not American.

You'd love the Cackle Sisters. They also mixed in bird songs:

Not many recordings of them, but a radio show does survive:

Is birding what this person is doing? I thought it was a distress call of some sort.

Maybe not so much a distress call, Virtual, as having some intimate and sensitive portion of their anatomy pinched in a rhythmic manner.

S. Norman: you make me wonder. Their trade name was DeZurik, but their Pikiwedia page capitalises their original name as Dezurik. A French misspelling of "De Zurich", and therefore originally of honest Swiss stock, or Polish-American imitators? I guess it'll have to remain a riddle for the ages...
