Booker Orchestra – “Camp Nelson Blues” (mp3)

Booker Orchestra – “Camp Nelson Blues” (mp3)

Jim Booker, who learned fiddle playing from his father, a former slave in Kentucky, with his string band Booker Orchestra: his younger brothers Joe and John Booker on guitars, and neighbor Robert Steele on kazoo. Can’t say we know much about Camp Nelson, but whatever happened there was enough to inspire the Booker Brothers to write this upbeat blues jig. A fiddlers delight, here. I’m proud to have this mp3 for your listening pleasure.
