Singing for Thanksgiving Dinner - Hambone Am Sweet (1930's)

I wish I could find a little more information about the Four Southern Singers. The sound reminds me of Oh Brother Where Art Thou, primitive and earthy. Unfortunately, I can't find any biographical information on the Four Southern Singers, all I can say is they were an African American group that seems to have formed sometime during the 1920's or 30's.

Luckily for us, their rendition of Hambone am Sweet is available through the auspices of YouTube. So tuck in your napkin, pull yourself up to the table, and enjoy.
