The Blackest Crow

(Traditional  Appalachian)  This is the one piece of pure Appalachia that made it onto the record, though we dearly love to play fiddle tunes and old country songs at our shows.  Needless to say, when we were on the coffee house circuit in Memphis it was the one song guaranteed to bring the coffee grinders to life.  Nobody in the band misses those days.  I first heard this song on a Rising Appalachia CD back in 2007, and have since heard more and varied versions than I could even hope to remember.  I’m pretty sure our version owes something to the playing and singing of David White down in River Falls, South Carolina.
