Hand-Me-Down Music: Old Songs, Old Friends - Vol. 1 Traditional Music of Union County, North Carolina

Various local musicians and singers from Union County, North Carolina, perform 20 folk melodies that have been handed down from generation to generation. Recorded by Karen G. Helms and Otto Henry, the collection consists of both vocal and instrumental performances. Perhaps the best known track is the children’s folk song “Froggie Went-A-Courtin,” performed a capella by Otis High and Flarrie Griffin. This 1979 release identifies the performers for each track; no other recording information is available.
