More from the famous lost series of short sound films of banjo whiz Hezekiah Urastus Anderton, who just happens to be my great-grand father. He is accompanied on this occasion by bones player Cornelius Jeremiah Pretzl, who just happens to be the great-great grandfather of my friend and fellow youtube musician Kyle Pretzl. An amazing series of co-incidences, I'll grant you. Sometimes things like that just happen.

The cinematographer on this 1897 date was Thomas Edison's step-nephew, Elmer Edison.
