The 2nd South Carolina String Band is one of the most active and popular Civil War camp bands in America. With four CDs and an hour-long video of music to their credit, these boys are enjoyed by reenactors and anyone else who like a rollicking good time. Their music is boisterous and high spirited, evoking the days when soldiers entertained their comrades around the campfire with the tunes of minstrel composers like Dan Emmett and Stephen Foster. Listening to the 2nd South Carolina String Band is an exciting experience that brings the sounds of the past to life.
