THE DIXIE HUMMINGBIRDS & THE LITTLE WONDERS FRC-208-CD

$15.99

Sunday morning at the Brandywine Mountain Music Convention was always special. Ola Belle Reed first introduced us to the Little Wonders, a gospel group originally formed in 1941 from Havre de Grace, Maryland. The Little Wonders broadcast on AM radio each Sunday from their church and specialized in older-style "jubilee" singing. In later years we engaged the legendary Dixie Hummingbirds gospel quartet residing in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Dixie Hummingbirds first formed in 1928 in South Carolina and later became well-known, appearing circa 1942 at New York's CafŽ Society club alongside the Golden Gate Quartet and Billie Holiday. Though both groups used one guitar, they sang essentially in a cappella style. Read more about them at www.fieldrecorder.com and from Jerry Zolten's book, "Great God A'Mighty! The Dixie Hummingbirds". - Carl Goldstein, the Brandywine Friends of Old-Time Music
