Al Fike, 1912-1996 The Modern Minstrel Man

The pace of the early 1900s was slow, the music sweet, and one learned by living. Then came the roaring 20′s and a heady mixture of jazz, ragtime and blues prevailed. Al Fike heard the sounds of the country growing around him, made them his own, and regaled audiences from coast to coast in candy-striped jacket and straw hat. Well into the 40′s, he kept the traditions of vaudeville alive with a performance library of American music, idioms, composers, and styles.
