Andrew & Jim Baxter

b. Calhoun, Georgia, USA. A dad and kid duo, playing violin and electric guitar, respectively, the Baxters documented at four periods between 1927 and 1929. Their information offer a uncommon example of a mature, more rural, dark music custom in Georgia. Although some had been blues, notably the soft and melancholy ‘KC Railroad Blues’, others such as for example ‘Georgia Stomp’ had been nation dance tunes, very similar in lots of ways to some from the white traditional music documented around once. The latter also included spoken dance phone calls of the sort more usually connected with white nation music. Emphasizing this connection, Andrew, the daddy (who’s said to have already been half-Cherokee Indian), produced one record using the white old-time group the Georgia Yellowish Hammers, on the 1927 session.
