BanjoThe Old Time Players is a unique group of dedicated old-time musicians, committed to the preservation of our American musical heritage. This group plays a wide variety of traditional American music, old-time fiddle and dance tunes, and folk songs from our great Western expansion. This was the popular music of the day, and American musical expression continued to grow through such modes as the minstrel show, vaudeville, burlesque, and ragtime. These tunes represent over 100 years of our musical diversity and the development of American popular culture. This music is incredibly high-spirited and hard-hitting yet rhythmically sophisticated. It is energetic and fun. Let us show you how much fun it can be for you! Please register at 1-800-613-3163.
