Sugarlands Spirit Stage



Our mission is to perform the weirdest songs from the early days of tin pan alley on the format on which they were first recorded—wax cylinder

 

“From the first recordings made on tinfoil in 1877 to the last produced on celluloid in 1929, cylinders spanned a half-century of technological development in sound recording. As documents of American cultural history and musical style, cylinders serve as an audible witness to the sounds and songs through which typical audiences first encountered the recorded human voice. And for those living at the turn of the 20th century, the most likely source of recorded sound on cylinders would have been Thomas Alva Edison’s crowning achievement, the phonograph.” -Cylinder Preservation and Digitization Project; Donald C. Davidson Library, University of California at Santa Barbara

 

We all share a love of antiquated pop tunes, and we recently took on the challenge of recording them in the only medium that does them justice. These old songs give a voice to a bygone era and reflect the attitudes of their time, and no matter how silly they seem they are historical documents of their time.

 

We aim to mine the zaniest and most obscure songs from the early 20th century and record them for a new audience to underscore both the absurdity and importance of popular music in American history.
