specious reasoning


jeffrey martín + david mccormick

plausible… but fallacious!  what if the real-life black fiddlers who played at monticello were super queer and engaged in over-the-top battles with other “family” bands?  it is, of course, a bit of historical (hysterical?) fiction, but the fiddlers of the scott and hemings families of monticello no doubt engaged in some music-making that was — over.  the.  top.

… the category is… black fiddle realness.
