Country/bluegrass singing group thrown together for a fast buck in 1937 by three on the lam convicts and a bluesman who sold his soul to the devil in the silly and charming 2000 movie O Brother Where Art Thou. Their song, the old standard, "I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow," sung with tight harmonies with that "high lonesome sound" becomes a regional radio hit. They also sing "In The Jailhouse Now" at an impromptu concert performance.

Lineup:

  • Ulysses Everett McGill (George Clooney) Lead Vocal
  • Pete (John Turturro) Backup Vocal
  • Delmar (Tim Blake Nelson) Backup Vocal
  • Tommy Johnson (Chris Thomas King) Guitar.
