Colleagues of mine are transcribing brass band music from the 1850s and there are many medleys of minstrel tunes. The brass band arrangements are in Finale with sound files. We are looking for any minstrel banjo players that would listen to the sound files and identify the tunes for us. @skkinne
Well, old joe clark is a famous one, as well as cripple creek, sugar hill, cumberland gap, doggetts gap, etc... I hope someone will be able to help!
Is there somewhere we can see and/or hear them?
I might be able to help.
I love this kind of music, too. It's very soothing and inspiring. But now, unfortunately, there are hardly any professional musicians. I love music only as a listener and a music education theorist. I like to listen to the piano playing, how well it sounds. And I appreciate it very much because I also have a piano at home and want to play it, i also produce stock sounds. As you can see, my musical tastes are incredibly varied, but back to the subject. I think your project is precious, and I will gladly support it in any way I can. I wish you good luck!
