Down Yonder


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.
