“Oh! Dem Golden Slippers” was written in 1879 by an African American named James A. Bland. It was played in the Mummers’ Parade in 1905. It is still played in Mummers’ Parades to this day, and the rhythm and harmony lends itself to the dancing of the Golden Slipper, or Mummers’ Strut. Source: Oh! Dem Golden Slippers, 1970, p.115, Charles E. Welch, 394.
