April 5, 2010, and Still WaitingForTheFederals

10 04 2010

Here’s the latest video I’ve had a chance to upload from the weekly jams I’ve been recording.

The tale is told of slaves in the American South at the end of the Civil War singing this to one another, hearing the gunboats coming up the river.

An online search turned up this accounting of lyrics.  More importantly, it turned up this banjo rendition.  It seems a useful reference archetypal symbol, musically speaking.  Moreover, I found this awesome list!

Since February 1, 2010, I have been posting video of the old time jam and hobo music at John’s Pub in Mystic CT on monday nites (the jam, not the posting).

All are mirrored at

I hope You Enjoy these as much as I have enjoyed making them!

Cheers, Dave Manchester

Old Sledge played the Mystic Independent Theater on April 5. Then they joined us at John’s Pub for the Jam. Along ’bout an hour into it, Dan Thompson, Dan Spurr (late of the Can Kickers) (Incognito), and Dan Fram joined The Locals, Me, Marta Daniels, and a host of others (see tags for this entry) for a rip-roaring good time!

Whoo-Hoo!
