Southern Belle will perform a selection of old time songs and dance tunes originating from the Appalachian Mountains. Old time music is pre-bluegrass with the roots originating from African, Irish and European workers that merged their own genres together in the US using the banjo and fiddle. The fiddle and banjo is then accompanied by other instruments and are performed as ‘front porch’ music for family and friends to dance and other informal gatherings.
Old time existed in the 1800s and was not given its name until 1920s. Bluegrass evolved from old time to be performed and became more commercial using advance musical technique with improvisation and different picking patterns on the banjo colouring melodies to provide entertainment suitable for the stage.
Southern Belle are sometimes a 2-piece to a 6-piece depending on the type of performance.
