Learn fashionable and evocative tunes from 19th-century America! Originally collected for the fretless minstrel banjo, many of these tunes were taught to Tom Briggs in Southern plantations, and are the sound of a new, vibrant America. Mixing early Black banjo music, with European dances, a new popular music was born, which, in the following decades, would to mature into ragtime and jazz.

Rob MacKillop arranged these pieces for fingerstyle ukulele. They sound great on either a standard uke or on a banjo ukulele. The CD recording contains performances of all 20 pieces by Rob MacKillop on a banjo ukulele.
