Next Friday we are releasing our version of “Dink’s Song,” which was first heard sung in 1909 by an African American woman named Dink as she washed her husband’s clothes in a tent camp near Houston, TX. The song traveled north in the 1960s and became a staple of the Greenwich Village folk scene being sung by the likes of Dave Van Ronk and Bob Dylan.
We’re releasing it digitally as well as on 7” vinyl with a new acoustic version of “Ballad of Olof Johnson” as the b-side. Shipping starts soon via Grand Phony and will also be available this Friday to order via Bandcamp. Pick it up now and pre-save the song coming Friday!
