Slaughter Jamboree

In 1953, Aunt Dorcas came to NC to visit. On December 26, 1953, there was a gathering at Aunt Rachel and Uncle Offie’s house. Someone brought recording equipment, others brought their musical instruments, and there was a piano already. Bratcher Slaughter played the fiddle, Sidney Slaughter played the electric guitar, and Carlyle Slaughter (“Al”) played the piano. Others joined in singing. One of them announced the songs as if it were a radio show and called it “The Slaughter Jamboree.”
