Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

I think it was Carl thatbrought this cool tune to our attention about this time last year. It's on page 24 of Buckley's '68 under another name. With gut strung guitar and an 1870s anglo concertina.

Very nice. Love the concertina / banjo pairing and the guitar is the icing on the cake. Steel reeds on the concertina? Just curious & trying to learn about these things.

Steel reeds. There are tunes that make me wish had one more fold in the bellows — that's one of them.

It's in the Buckley 1868, with the insulting word in the title, the (African-American's) Frolic.

Ian, this is a wonderful video.

I have been working on the tune most of the day. 

Thanks for posting it.

Loved the sound of the three instruments and the way they were arranged.
