Dixie Humminbirds

Our local paper Orillia Packet & Times had an article on the Dixie Hummingbirds. Here's a fuller article from wikipedia.

You thought the Rolling Stones have been around forever? The Dixie Hummingbirds have just passed their 80th anniversary, and for most of that time they had the same core group of members and they had the same lead singer for 70 years!

They started as a group of 12 & 13 year olds who wanted to sing in church.

Love Me Like a Rock
They sang backup for Paul Simon's recording of this song

I've Got So Much to Shout About
