Skiffle

Skiffle is a musical genre with influences from jazz, blues, and American folk music, generally performed with a mixture of manufactured and homemade or improvised instruments. Originating as a form in the United States in the first half of the 20th century, it became extremely popular in the UK in the 1950s, where it was associated with such artists as Lonnie Donegan, The Vipers Skiffle Group, Ken Colyer, and Chas McDevitt.
