Video – Hen Hoe Down

Video

Fred Thelonious Baker playing his tune “Hen Hoe Down (chicken pickin good)” to his wife’s chickens to see how they like it. The acoustic bass seems to go down well, as no crowing occurred during the show. This is truly and literally an unplugged performance with chickens happily joining in.

It’s also a rare chance to see FTB flat picking.
