A taste of Hamtramck hillbilly

Posted By on Tue, Dec 16, 2014 at 3:19 PM

Did you know that Hamtramck was home to a thriving rockabilly/ hillbilly scene in the 1950s and '60s? I didn't either, until recently. Then I landed here, and saw that this has already been covered in full by the Metro Times — it's nice to know that really solid work has been done here for years, already.

I do know that both of these songs are super sweet. They certainly aren't over-produced or too slicked-up!
