On the Banks of the Old Ohio

Today we decided to do a murder ballad. Traditional music of the mountains is a great place to start. The Dixon Brothers and the Callahan Brothers recorded this country/blues song in the mid thirties. The Dixon’s were Carolina millworkers who played music, & were picked on for being so-called hillbillies & also persecuted by the local police for being so-called communists. The Callahan’s were from the same scene, and became successful, but the Dixon’s never left their day jobs in the cotton mills. This was some wonderful but dark music that those guys were doing back then.
