Welcome to Mellow's Log Cabin.

Folk tunes set

Here is a set of folk tunes I recently downloaded. We have some nice bluegrass sounds on it with Bill Monroe, the Soggy Bottom Boys, the Stanley Brothers and we've got also more folk/old-time tunes here with Doc Watson & Bill Monroe and an unidentified youtube guitarist called "Fretkillr". His version of "Deep River Blues" is wonderful, check it out. Also beautiful is Monroe's rendition of "Wayfaring Stranger", his later version was the one that introduced me to this tune and I always liked this (although Johnny Cash's recording of it is also excellent).


track list:
1. Bill Monroe & Doc Watson - Banks of the Ohio
2. Bill Monroe - Wayfaring Stranger
3. Unidentified "Fretkillr" - Deep River Blues
4. Soggy Bottom Boys - Man of Constant Sorrow
5. Soggy Bottom Boys - In the Jailhouse Now
6. Soggy Bottom Boys - You Are My Sunshine
7. Stanley Brothers - Angel Band

This is nice; thanks for posting.

One correction: the version of "Your Are My Sunshine" here is by Norman Blake (from the same "Brother Where Art Thou" soundtrack as the "Soggy Bottom Boys" tunes).

Appreciate your blog.
