We'd go to these dances. Every gal with her beau and such music! Had two fiddles, two tambourines, two banjos and two sets of bones… They always had the best dances. Most times for the dance they had Dennis to play the banjo. Dennis had a twisted arm, and he couldn't do much work, but he sho' could pick that banjo.

~ Betty Jones and Fanny Berry, from1850s
