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.

Omar & the Stringpoppers
Omar & the Stringpoppers - Crazy Baby
Omar & the Stringpoppers - Cottonpickin'
Never saw such a wild rockabilly band. I knew them before I discovered these clips on YouTube, but actually wasn't aware of their raw stage appereances. In the first video, Omar's strings are down-and-out and the second one is a cover of "Cottonpickin'", an instrumental originally recorded by Mickey Hawks and the Night Raiders in 1959. Very well done!
