For enthusiasts of early banjo
More odd machine poetry.
19th century beat poetry! Where did that come from and who's Charley Fox?!
This is Charley Fox..
There are references to "Machine Poets" as being poets more concerned with the rules than the content. I have suspected that the Minstrel version was burlesquing the pretension of poets.
Charley Fox is one of the gentlemen on our wall. Third down to the right.
He has some stuff in the Old Cremona Songster to his credit. I forget....did he work with Converse at some point?
Yes-- there is a drawing in the Old Cremona Songster doing their Siamese twin act.

Well - there's some fine conversational fodder for the two hour drive to the dance I'm playing tonight. Thanks gents.
So they would recite...then play.....over and over?
I'd love to hear it.
