Artist: Matthew Sabatella & the Rambling String Band with the Pompano Beach Old-Time Jammers

Description: This song (formally titled "Oh, Dem Golden Slippers") was composed by prominent black minstrel songwriter and banjo player James A. Bland in 1879. The melody later passed from the minstrel stage into folk and fiddling tradition. "Oh, Dem Golden Slippers" was originally a mockery of "Golden Slippers," a spiritual song sung by the Fisk Jubilee Singers. Bland's version surpassed the Fisk song in popularity and is now commonly referred to as "Golden Slippers." With the help of the Pompano Beach Old-Time Jammers, Matthew Sabatella & the Rambling String Band bring together the vocal version of the song and the fiddle version. See "Old Joe Clark" and "Yellow Rose of Texas" for more from 'Old-Time Music Night' at Luna Star Cafe in North Miami on Friday, October 24, 2008.
