Collecting MadVideos -- The final Whiskey Friday jam
on

One week ago today on Friday, Jan. 12, the informal bluegrass assemblage known as Whiskey Friday put on their last hootenanny in a house on the near east side of Madison. Claiming membership in a variety of other groups (including the Trails End String Band, the Lonesome Rogues, and the Cajun Strangers), this assemblage of pickers, pluckers, and singers performed an American classic for posterity.

A music video of this final jam session, complete with a grainy, black and white old-school television patina, follows below.

The song featured in this video is "Who Walks In When I Walk Out," an early 20th Century American standard. Written by Al Hoffman, Al Goodman, and Ralph Freed, it has been famously performed by Bill Wills & the Texas Playboys and as a duet by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong.

As seen in the video, each member of Whiskey Friday participating this version of the classic is introduced in turn. They are: John Gillette, David "Pappy" Stabbe, Sarah Mittlefehldt, Mark Kunkel, Claire Mikolayunas, Joe Davis, Evan Murdock, Cassie Wyss, Jeff Burkhart, and Greg Bennett.

If you wish to let us know about more videos by, of, and about Madison and Madisonians, please consider adding them to the Isthmus YouTube group or send a message.
