Seth Weeks (ca. 1865-after 1924) was the only black professional mandolin soloist during the golden age of the mandolin, and among his published compositions is his Mandolin Concerto of 1900, the first by an American composer. Weeks toured in vaudeville on the Keith circuit and had many compositions for mandolin published, both in the U.S. and in England, where he spent much of his career. This is one of three Weeks compositions to be included in a collection of mandolin and piano music, currently in preparation: http://www.neilgladd.com/Publications...
