Abner Jay !
The ultimate one-man-band wild man from the 1920-1960s Abner Jay was the most unusual music talent the world has ever seen and a true southerner.
There is a long line of social and musical experience which constitutes Jay´s tradition: blacks' domestic entertainment inspiring white imitations; in turn stimulating composed, sheet-music idioms for middle-class and professional performance, which then animated younger generations of black musicians.
For forty two years Jay worked as a unique one man band where he played electric banjo and swamp guitar, drums, harmonica, and sang at the same time.
Abner Jay was the first of the original black musicians and played the only electric six string banjo you'll ever hear.
A true hero !
