Darkness On The Delta
« on: December 18, 2020, 06:07:33 PM »
The Delta Strummers were founded here in Discovery Bay on the California Delta. In their early years the group thought that the song 'Darkness On The Delta' would be a good theme song, and played /sang it in a number of performances.

Origin of the song was in the Mississippi Delta, in 1932. Here's the wiki:
