Who originally sang "The House of the Rising Sun"?

Answer

The first recording of "The House of the Rising Sun" was made in 1933 by Clarence "Tom" Ashley and Gwen Foster. The original version of the song was recorded in the Appalachian region of the United States.

The famous song has its roots in folklore with no direct knowledge of who wrote the lyrics or the music. While it was first recorded by the two aforementioned performers, versions of the tune in different forms; alternating chord progression and unique lyrics, have existed for hundreds of years. The British band, The Animals, recorded the most famous version in 1964, which went on to top the charts around the world.
