Song Saturday - Alison Krauss

I am a big Alison Krauss fan and I particularly love the folksy, southern renditions she does of old time songs and hymns. Here are two.

The first is Down to the River to Pray, a negro spiritual from around the 1860's. You might remember it from the movie Brother Where Art Thou.

I'll Fly Away is a little newer. It was written in the 1920's. Here it is performed by Alison Krauss and Gillian Welch
