Taylor Hunnicutt & Daniel Raine Sweet Tater Festival 2017
MUSIC WAS KING (& QUEEN) @ SWEET TATER FESTIVAL TODAY
The outstanding musical duo of Taylor Hunnicutt & Daniel Raine performed this classic early 20th Century folk song – Salty Dog – on the main stage at Smith Lake Park.
These two were the featured musical guests in the coveted 12-noon time slot during Day 1 of the 2017 Sweet Tater Festival.
You may recall Salty Dog appeared in a 1963 episode of The Andy Griffith Show, “The Darlings Are Coming”, featuring The Dillards. In the show, the band is called the Darling family and performs a rendition of “Salty Dog” with Andy Griffith on guitar.
