Rhythm Rats

The Rhythm Rats were organized in 1988 after meeting at a festival in Warren County (probably the Old Tyme Music Festival which is held annually at Caesar’s Creek Pioneer Village near Waynesville). Members were Kenny Jackson on fiddle, Paula Bradley on guitar, and Whitt Mead on banjo. They were into old-time music and in 1992 recorded a cassette for Larry MacBride’s Indiana label, Marimac. Titled Pretty Crowin’ Chicken, it had some really eerie-feeling fiddle tunes such as “Indian War Whoop” and “Lost Indian.” They issued a second album, I Believe I’ll Go Back Home. Eventually they all moved on to other bands, although they apparently still get together occasionally as the Rhythm Rats.
