AFHA’s 2015 concert series presents Yeller Dog at the Darden Mill. Hailing from Kentucky, Yeller Dog is John Harrod, Tona Barkley, and Anna Harrod. Their name comes from a fiddle tune, “The Old Yeller Dog,” as well as several old yeller dogs they have called family, as well as an old New Deal historical reference.

John Harrod has followed the traditional music of Kentucky most of his life, recorded many folks in their homes, and produced several recordings documenting this music. In addition to Yeller Dog, he plays fiddle and guitar with Kentucky Wild Horse, the Kentucky Clodhoppers, and the Pawpaw Pickers. His wife Tona Barkley is a visual artist, quilter, and gardener and plays guitar in the Kentucky Clodhoppers and the Pawpaw Pickers. Anna Harrod, John’s daughter, is a student at Berea College, major in Appalachian Studies and Agriculture. She had the misfortune of being exposed to hillbilly music fro a very early age, following the trail to West Virginia and last summer to Ireland.

There is nothing better than a family band for sharing music in the true spirit!
