This weekend I’m back in South Carolina, and although I’m still a good ways away from anything that could be called a mountain, being back here makes me want to listen to some good old down south mountain music. So today I’ve picked out two bands that I think all of you should listen to so you can go ahead and be prepared for what the radios will be playing exclusively after the inevitable rise of the South.
First off, here’s a great band called Carolina Chocolate Drops. They’re out of North Carolina and they’re the only all black old time band I’ve ever seen.
Carolina Chocolate Drops – (if you know the name of this song, post it in the comments)
Carolina Chocolate Drops – Hit Em Up Style (not exactly mountain music, but it’s fun to listen to)
Next up is a more well-known band, Old Crow Medicine Show. They’ve got a more full sound than the Chocolate Drops, and I love the harmonica. The second song I’ve got of theirs, Wagon Wheel, is their most popular and is one of my favorite songs of all time.
Old Crow Medicine Show – Down Home Girl
