Oh Death (ancient Western ballad w/ throat singing)

Published on Nov 1, 2008

Luke and Kyle Abbott (of AbbottFamilyBlog.com) sing ‘Oh Death’, a song dating back to the 1600s which was featured in, “Oh Brother Where Art Thou?” Our version is based off of both Dock Boggs’ 1928 recording and one from the New Lost City Ramblers. Kyle uses Tuvan Throat Singing for the voice of Death. This was recorded on Halloween 2008. Watch it at night in full screen mode for full effect. 🙂
