! The Capharnaum County Magicians Society is an evolving one-ban band, inspired by 5-string banjo music of the 19th century and filtered through various decades of the 20th.

Old music for new instruments, and new music for old instruments. Gas lights and Edison bulbs, Phonograph cylinders and theremins, moustache wax and tobacco.

My name is Andy Chase, and I'll be your Master of Ceremonies. I'm better known on the fediverse (if at all) as @ItsTheManOnTheMoon .

Please do have a listen and follow us at magicians.bandcamp.com.

(Hmm, perhaps not Google Play just yet; it was there earlier, not there now)

We need to bring more #music bands to the #Fediverse and let's start an initiative for that. There are already a few instances for music, so it should not fail. Only that way people like to come to #Mastodon & Co.
🎶 🎵
I suggest the hashtag #FediverseMusic and that you use it in other #SocialMedia as well. If you have a music project or even a #band then start with it and let our community grow.

...taking into account the various obnoxious oddfellows, or whatever.

Here's a sneak preview of a project that's in the works, collected solo (mostly) recordings of banjo music from the 1800s.

This is called 'Land of Canaan', as arranged in James Buckley's Banjo Guide of 1860 :jb:

The void is made of bones. The cloud is made of bones. We are all made of bones and it's just so really wonderful.

This is Cupid's Dream Waltz from the 'guitar style' section of Frank Converse's "New and Complete Method for the Banjo With or Without a Master" of 1865, played on a slightly more modern banjo at concert pitch. :fbc:
