AFRICAN AMERICAN OLD-TIME STRING BAND MUSIC: A SELECTIVE DISCOGRAPHY

VIEWS: 18 PAGES: 15

In the interest of maintaining a clear focus, this essay deals with African American old-time string band dance music and does not examine groups whose recorded repertoire is primarily blues, ragtime, jazz, or folk song. African American solo performers as well as group members are also more likely to sing than white musicians playing similar dance music and often place more emphasis on the rhythmic elements of the music.3 A collection, Black Banjo Songsters of North Carolina and Virginia (Smithsonian Folkways SF CD 40079 [1998]), includes many songs and dance tunes played by soloists and duos.
