Elder James Caudill - One Christmas Dark Night (Christmas in Appalachia, 2011)
Elder James Caudill is an Old Regular Baptist minister for the Indian Bottom Church Association. While Old Regular Baptist churches exist as far north as Michigan and as far south as Florida, and several churches still exist in the state of Washington, the strength of the Old Regulars is in the Appalachian Mountains, particularly along the Kentucky and Virginia border. Elder Caudill and his choir are featured on the Music of Coal two-disc set on Lonesome Records and Songs of the Old Regular Baptists, Vol. 2: Lined-out Hymnody from Southeastern Kentucky on Smithsonian Folkways Recordings.
