Ragtime High Stepping Good Time Music – Vaudevillian Music Hall Minstrel Medicine Show
The end of the twentieth century saw the formation of Sheesham and Lotus, a simple musical duo whose main concern was to revive fiddle music and good-time songs of years past. In the years following, they have become one of the most popular Old Time Roots acts in North America. Noted for their highly original presentation, Sheesham and Lotus have created a sonic and visual language that is very much their own, utilizing instruments of their own creation such as the Sepia-phonic monophone, and the Contrabass Harmoniphoneum. Such inventions have been instrumental in building a show that is vividly antique in both sight and sound, along with their excellent musicianship, setting them apart as true innovators of their craft.
In 2012 Sheesham and Lotus recorded the critically acclaimed “1929”, joined by sousaphone player, ‘Son Sanderson. The record was quickly nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award in the category of “Best Traditional Album”.
