Stride Piano Oldies

This makes a great gift for the senior citizen in your life!


In the first fifty years of the 20th century, before TV and computers, a common form of entertainment was getting together with family and friends and singing. Old and young joined together in song. Some had good voices and others did not, but that didn't matter. Everyone was included. Singing in harmony was commonly done. There may have been an old upright piano in someone's living room that was used to accompany this singing. In the case people were outdoors - on a picnic or something - it might have been a guitar or an accordion. But with or without an instrument, people still sang.

The piano playing style is definitely outdated, or old-fashioned. But it was the style of the day and it had energy and is fun to listen to.

Anyone over 75 probably knows all the words to these songs.
