General Note:
This session features three different ensembles. It begins with a fife and drum group performing instrumental tunes, followed by a scratch band performing instrumental tunes interspersed with speeches and banter, and concludes with a calypso group. R0oger Abrahams and Antoinette Marchand are the interviewers on this session. Some of the recordings (as well as speech transcriptions) can be found on Caribbean Voyage: Nevis and St. Kitts (R0ounder 1731).
General Note:
Performance consists of solo singing throughout and is preceded by a short spoken introduction. Charles Walters is the composer of this tune despite Santoy’s claim to the contrary (Abrahams, Roger, Caribbean Voyage: Nevis and St. Kitts, Rounder 82161-1731-2).
