Skiffle is a music genre with jazz, blues, folk and roots influences, usually using homemade or improvised instruments. Originating as a term in the United States in the first half of the 20th century, it became popular again in the UK in the 1950s. "You'd see all the people out on a Saturday night or a Friday night... sippin' and lippin'. Skifflin' is what we'd call it, serenading'... we were ahead of all the black and the white musicians because we could play foreign songs... German, Jewish, Polish, Italian, Swedish, Hungarian, cotton field songs... played obericks, muzerkas for Russian people."
~ Howard Armstrong
