    Default historical fiddle and mandolin footage, Canadian north

    No sound I'm afraid.

    Footage of musicians begins at about 1:10. Watch closely!

    The military uniforms don't look Canadian. American?

    Robert Johnson's mother, describing blues musicians:
    "I never did have no trouble with him until he got big enough to be round with bigger boys and off from home. Then he used to follow all these harp blowers, mandoleen (sic) and guitar players."

    Yes in fact the insignia on cap reads “US”

    A fiddler and guitarist, joined by mandolinist, great footage!
    Technique, theory and fun, fun, fun. I love playing, studying and sharing MUSIC.
