Olly Oakley
Banjo Burlesque & Bolero - (CDR46)

Olly Oakley was the most famous banjo player of his day. Appearing at concerts and on the Music Halls during the early 1900s, Olly Oakley's name became synonymous with the banjo. As his style of playing proved ideal for the acoustic recording technology of the day, he was much in demand from the record and phonograph companies. In 1901 Olly Oakley signed a contract with the Gramophone & Typewriter Ltd which resulted in many of the recordings on this CD.
