For enthusiasts of early banjo
A tune I've been working on for a few months.
Favorite of 1 person
Those dirty Ethiopian delineators called it Kick up de Debbel on a Holiday, but I am not interested in reifying their twisted ways and so I write the name of the song in standard english, which I understand, is a reel. I am assuming it would have been played by the Black and Irish musicians who were playing a lot of music together in antebellum America. At any rate, I dig the groove, the harmony and can feel the dance in it.
One of my favorites. You're kickin' up the devil on that one!!!!
for a split second it almost sounds like O'l Joe Clark.
Thanks, everyone for your comments. Thanks, and comin' from you, Mr. Tim Twiss...WELL! I declare! I've been listening to you for a long time. and Jim Hartel, your Boucher helps. It's a beautiful instrument.
Angela, you have given me some huge inspiration today with this. I would die happy to be able to play this like you did here. My own minstrel banjo is coming in the next couple of weeks, I will surely be attempting a slow version of this on it, inspired by you to kick up the Devil !
('dirty Ethiopian delineators'....sounds like a fitting subject for an original tune)
Who are the Ethiopian Delineators? There are so many old Minstrel groups I am just starting to get into that history more and more. Who's was Cool White. I thought he was with a band called the Ethiopian Serenader's
