about

This song comes from Addie Graham of Wolfe County, KY, who was recorded in her 70s by her grandson, Rich Kirby. It shares a melody with the popular shape-note song, Idumea, and is a great example of Graham’s powerful, ornamented singing style. We sing the two songs back-to-back to showcase different traditional ways of setting a melody and adding harmony.
