Kansas Jig

A composition by Herbert Ellis, circa 1890-1900.

Goofed on the penultimate measure in the second part (I ignored the dotted 8th on purpose, it breaks up the flow too much - but it should be an A♭ ♭5 chord) - will have to record a new one!

What Is This?

Long before jazz, old-time, or bluegrass, the banjo was associated with very different musical styles, now largely forgotten.

The music on this site is taken from (or inspired by) period sources from the 1800s through the early 1900s.
