There seems to be a strong connection between the music of of the Adams/Chandler/Wallin family of Sodom Laurel, North Carolina, and the music of the LaPrelles of Rural Retreat, North Carolina.

Here's Cas Wallin, sitting on Dellie Chandler's porch in 1982, singing "Pretty Saro"

and here's Elizabeth LaPrelle singing "Pretty Saro" in 2009
