Song Of The Day - "Rain And Snow" by Obray Ramsey

The Grateful Dead's "Cold Rain And Snow" was based on Ramsey's version of this traditional favorite. Ramsey was a banjo playing extraordinaire who worked with his cousin Byard Ray in the duo Ray and Ramsey. He was also a member of the group White Lightnin’. While hardly a household name, he did have a song, "Ballad Of Obray Ramsey," named after him by Matthew's Southern Comfort.
