Recording of Harry Kiker found on the Slippery-Hill website.


Judging from this writeup, Sand Mountain Drag's eponymous mountain is the Sand Mountain where I grew up in Alabama, and where my father's side of the family has lived for over a century. The source recording was by a band called Dilly and His Dill Pickles, fronted by John Dilleshaw on guitar and vocals and with Harry Kiker on fiddle.
