Early Morley Melodies


This album contains some of the first solos composed and played by Joe Morley, and they are typical examples of the banjo music of the 1890s and early 1900s.  These were the solos played by the Minstrel Troupes, the Pierrots, and the concert parties which entertained the public, not only at the seaside during the summer, but also at countless local halls and theatres throughout the year. It was the age before television, or even radio, when families were used to making their own entertainment at home, so it is not surprising that after hearing players such as Morley, people were attracted to the banjo and its music.
