1920 Harrie Coonie

Harrie Coonie described as "the real article brought from the cottonfields and introduced to Wales by the Cafe Chantant", Swansea's Cafe Society. He specialised in "plantation cullud folk and whirlwind dancing" in the Revue "Way Down South", together with a "Jazz Orchestra of Cullud Gemmen", and included Sand Dancing, Buck Dancing and Tango Jazzing. His popularity was such that he gave dancing classes for the Swansea patrons at the end of his shows.
