• Short Summary

    Felix Mendelssohn's Hawaiian Serenaders play 'String Harmony' in the Pathe Studio.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Now Pathetone Presents Another Popular Radio Band FELIX MENDELSOHN'S [sic] HAWAIIAN SERENADERS in STRING HARMONY".

    London, probably Pathe Studio.

    Various shots of Felix Mendelssohn and his Hawaiian Serenaders playing 'String Harmony'. Lots of shots of the Hawaiian steel lap guitar (except it is on a table rather than a lap). The double bass player strums his strings in a jaunty way. Nice C/Us of the musicians.

    Cataloguer's note: I quite like Felix's music - it's a nice way to drift off from the reality of working in Camden.
