Folk Duo Sings 'House Of The Rising Sun/Amazing Grace' Medley

You have got to listen to this amazing folk duo sing this medley of 'House Of The Rising Sun’ and ‘Amazing Grace.'

“There is a house way down in New Orleans, they call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy, and God I know I'm one
Mother was a tailor, she sewed my new blue jeans
And my father was a gamblin' man, down in New Orleans”

The singers in the music video are Nate Jones and Taylor Haring, and they make up the group called Athens Creek. The lead guitarist in the video is Oscar Sosa. All of them together sound incredible, and the vocals and harmonies in the song are just wonderful! And their unique approach of blending 'House Of The Rising Sun’ and ‘Amazing Grace' is quite impressive.

“I love the juxtaposition of these songs sung together at the end,” writes one person on YouTube after watching the music video. “The desperation and pain of ‘The House of the Rising Sun’ being sung, even as the answer to those pains is delivered in ‘Amazing Grace.’  It was well performed by the group, and a huge congratulation goes to the arranger of the piece.”

“In my 76 years, I have heard many renditions of ‘House of the Rising Sun,’ but this rendition is quite possibly the best that I have heard, at least in my opinion,” comments another person online. “Your voices meld together yet remain separate, and blow the roof off the joint! Impeccable lead guitar playing, also!”

The band in the video, Athens Creek, is a country rock band out of Southeast Michigan, with a true Americana sound. And according to their YouTube page, they have been described as “the perfect blend between modern and classic and an excellent listening band for all ages.”

We hope that you enjoyed listening to this medley today!
