MUSIC






Music has always been part of my life .
I grew up listening to the Grand Ole Opry,
That is what mountain people did on Saturday Night!
I love the old church hymns;


Bluegrass;
 
                                                                   Old Mountain Songs

Our Church has a  "picking and grinning"  on Friday nights at our fellowship hall.
We started with just a few and it has grown  quite a bit in the last 5 years. Anyone who
wants to bring their instrument and play and sing is welcome. I must say there are some very
GOOD pickers who are there most of the time. And we have been blessed with others who just
"stop in" from time to time.
As caregiver to two family members, it is always a bright spot in my week.
All kinds of instruments;
Guitars,Banjos,Fiddles, Mandolins, Dobros, Autoharps and others-Everybody has a favorite.


And even Angels play guitars!

                                                   Some of the regulars and their instruments


There are many things in this world to make people happy, And to gospel, bluegrass, and old time pickers the greatest is music. Just ask any one of them!
Blessings on all who play and sing.
Happy picking ,
and
KEEP IT GOING!
 
 




Wishing  all of you "Tortoise Shell" (supposed to be best)  picks
and Golden Strings, and a LONG day of picking!
Love,
Shirley
