We are told to our faces often that though our quartet is one of the best that has been heard up here, they would like us better if we would "play the Nigger" - their own words - more... every day we are made to understand that if there was less refinement about us and more fool, we would do better... When I have about three persons ask for the [spirituals] and about four score ask that we dance and sing songs which tell of Negroes stealing chickens, I make no pretensions to try to please - Tuskegee Quartet member Isaac Fisher, in a letter to Dr. Booker T. Washington, c. 1900

Howdy Folks- Here's a tune, "Good Morning Judge". It's from "Us Folk",an early morning radio show I did out of Portland, ME, hosted by Chris Darling.

It's the third video down at Hope you enjoy it.

Well done, Frank. I'm sure that Howard Armstrong and Carl Martin would be proud. I'm glad to see that you're picking up some gigs close to home. We need John McPhee to write an article about you--"One Foot in the Pine Barrens, One Foot in the Blues."  ;)

Nice performance, Frank. Maybe Howard Armstrong did it differently to Carl Martin, but why not try playing the turnaround in the octave thus: (uncapoed) fifth string fifth fret and second string third fret, walking down to first fret second string and third fret fifth string? Just a thought...
