The Gold Rush, with Mart Taylor
This is a 50 minute one
man show based upon original 19th
material taken from a
by Mart Taylor in the 1850ís. I perform this material using an
authentic antique 19th guitar and a self-made replica 19th
Century fretless banjo.
Mart Taylor is a real
character from California's past who entertained throughout the
northern gold camps of the 1850s.
In addition to my musical repertoire, I have
many amusing tales of that hardy gold panning breed including a bald header
whizzer perpetrated by Pike Sellers in '49.
