General Note:
This session features two traditional ensembles. The first is a fife and drum band (also known as a big drum group) performing a traditional instrumental repertoire interspersed with comic speeches and toasts. The second is known as a “scratch band.” Some of the recordings can be found on Caribbean Voyage: Nevis and St. Kitts (R0ounder 1731).
General Note:
Extended vocal extemporization with chorus and band accompaniment. The vocalists are not indicated and are probably members of the ensemble.
