  1. Sullivan's Hollow
  2. The Little Yellow Dog Came Running Through The Meeting House

This Mississippi tune is named after a famously rough part of the state. I got it from Freeney's Barn Dance Band on County's "Mississippi String Bands" compilation, recorded in 1930. It's also on my album, Homunculus Mellitus.
This is a perennial crowd-pleaser. It works fast and slow, yee-haw or contemplative, or anywhere inbetween.
