Crawdad Hole

21 Jan 2013, by Ben Rodriguez in A SONG A DAY



The “Crawdad Song” was first sung by the workers building levees to prevent flooding of the Mississippi river. The tune got passed on to Tom “Clarence” Ashley from his Grandfather. Clarence began performing on medicine shows in the Southern Appalachians, as early as 1911. He was a claw hammer banjo player, a guitarist and a singer who learned to play music from his relatives. I learned this song from Clarence Ashley’s version.. this is our take on it.
