Welcome to Mellow's Log Cabin. This blog's purpose is to supply information on a diversity of American southern music - ranging from country, blues, old-time and folk to R&B, rock'n'roll and rockabilly. I regularly present my research results about artists, labels, shows and also give guest writers a chance to publish their texts here on occasion.

Searching for something to post today, I found this one on youtube. At first, I was hunting for some fine Old-timey on youtube, but I think this is even better. It's Allen Dale performing "Down Yonder", which was made popular by Gid Tanner and the Skillet Lickers in 1934. In 1951, Del Wood also had a hit with this and it was covered various times and became a standard in ragtime piano playing as well as in Old-Time and Bluegrass.
