It will cover the Italian music publishers and the Italian mandolin and accordion repertoires shared in the "ballo liscio" dance tradition. A slide show and discussion with vintage mandolin and piano roll recordings deriving from the Italian music publishers who lived in Philadelphia, Manhattan and Brooklyn, Providence, RI,, and the San Francisco bay area. These images and all documentation derive from my upcoming book of the same title. It is a glimpse back to the period from the late 1890s until the late 1950s.
