Soggy Bottom Boys
From: O Brother, Where Art Thou?
Members: Ulysses Everett McGill, Pete, Delmar O’Donnell, Tommy Johnson
With a guitarist who sold his soul to the Devil and three escaped convicts—one who certainly didn’t get hit by no dat-gum train—their odyssey to return home is riddled with danger. The Soggy Bottom Boys’ constant sorrow spawned an IRL resurgence in popularity for bluegrass music.
From: A Mighty Wind
Members: Mark Shubb, Alan Barrows, Jerry Palter
Sample: “Start Me Up” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGqo_yFQoU8|
The mockumentary “A Mighty Wind” folkuses (see what I did there?) on a group of musicians who bear an uncanny resemblance to the band that goes to 11 (Spinal Tap).
