We have been kicking off the new year by listening (some of us over and over and over) to Polk Miller and the Old South Quartette. Mr. Miller was a white musician who toured from 1892-1911 with an Afro-American Quartette, presenting audiences with a show depicting old times in the south. Half of the selections were recorded in 1909(!), and they are still captivating 100 years later. We are pleased to announce that Rootstone Jug Band has begun work on an album to be completed in the first half of 2009. Stay tuned for details. We have added an outtake to the Music page here. We hope you will enjoy. Check back for dates as they are added. There is much more primitive musical activity to come in 2009.
