Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

This was in our local paper this morning, the band is still active, though unfortunatly they changed their uniforms. Rohersville is about 5 miles east of Sharpsburg and maybe 4 miles west of Crampton's Gap on South Mountain. I wonder where these folks were 5 years later.

Don't you wish a method of recording was invented to coincide with photography?

Amen, Brother Al.

A pre Civil War brass band would have been markedly different from a post war band. The German band influence during the Civil War seems, to me, to have been strong. I wonder if they were at high pitch.

Is that a Grammy award the guy in front is holding?

And on the left, an alto or tenor horn?
