Pete Seeger Room - Room #107
The Ragtime Skedaddlers are Dennis Pash on banjo-mandolin, Nick Robinson on mandolin, and Dave Krinkel on guitar. They play rags, cakewalks, marches, waltzes, and latin-tinge pieces from vintage mandolin and guitar sheet music arrangements.
Consider this: these are not songs that are lifted from the repertoires of other revivalists. These are songs that have gone tragically unheard for a century. The Skedaddlers are combination musical paramedics/necromancers breathing new life into songs/tunes nearly dead and abandoned. Considered from that vantage point, they are dang miracle workers really.
