For enthusiasts of early banjo
Pry Barn Serenaders (John Masciale, Mark Weems, Tim Twiss, Carl Anderton, John Allin) perform "Jim Crack Corn" at the Antietam Early Banjo Gathering V, 2012....
Yes...the Howe Book is significant. It has all the tunes we love with melodies from which we may derive banjo arrangements. Also...the four part vocals of which was a centerpiece of Minstrel play. We did one as seen above, I rarely hook up with enough singers to do these...but when it happens, it is really nice.
I've listened to this posting many times. Now it makes me feel good and sad at the same time.
Are we never to enjoy this great venue, again?
Yea...the barn was a wonderful place to let the magic happen.
The part singing is something missing from most performances...and certainly was integral in the early minstrel shows....another sheet of shimmer to this genre.
