Backintyme

Frank and Mary Lee Sweet perform as Backintyme. Wearing period dress of the 1860s Civil War era, they perform nineteenth century songs and anecdotes.

Frank plays the banjo in the classical style of the time and Mary Lee "rattles the bones", keeps time with tamborine, Irish bodhran drum, or beats on the old jawbone (of a donkey.)

History will come alive as you hear the popular songs of the nineteenth century, performed as they were written, by song writers Stephen Foster, George Root, Henry Clay Work and others. Sing along to favorites like Oh Susanna, Camptown Races and Grandfather's Clock. Tap your feet to the lively music of nonsense songs, patriotic songs and gospel tunes, or enjoy the gentle love ballads of nineteenth century America.
