Rex Genuine Cowboy Songs (35) RE: Genuine Cowboy Songs 08 May 15


Jack Thorp said the most likely instrument you would find in an old cow camp was a fiddle and maybe a banjo. Charlie Siringo agreed.

Folks would refer to a concertina as a Cheese Box. A cheese box may not be hexagonal but it is roughly the right shape and size.

I sing the Cowboys Christmas Ball on Mark and my Jack Thorp's Songs of the Cowboys exactly as Thorp wrote it in his book. He got close to what Chittenden wrote. We call that our Sgt. Pepper track as we put in a few more instruments, even the bones.
