About Me

Freelance writer and bluegrass/old-time music fan; co-founder of the Collierville (TN) Historic Town Square Bluegrass & Old-Time Music Jam. The photo is of the old Tennessee Gentlemen Bluegrass Shack on Pleasant Ridge Road in Lucy, TN. That old shack is where I first heard bluegrass music. My life was changed from that moment on!

Thanks. Yea, I'm familiar with "Sugar in the Guord". I've got that bookmarked on my iPhone, and got a link to it on my other Website. Great program. I'm gonna' try and go up there sometime. Would like to get in one of those oldtime fiddle circles I've heard a lot about from Martin

Thanks for the pics. Do you know Martin Fisher? Does the old Cylinder Recordings. He's from Parsons. Pick with him from time to time. We have a place down at the River and he comes down sometimes and picks with us when he's visiting his Mom. Works at MTSU. He's invited me up to the Breakin' Up Winter a number of times - just never could seem to get the chance to go. Sounds like a lot of fun. I hear it's more Oldtime than Bluegrass, which makes it even more appealing to me. I like Oldtime Fiddle more-so than Bgrass. Thanks again for the pics.

I recently stopped by the Higher Ground Coffee Shop in Halls. It does my heart good to know that pickin' is going on in my mother's hometown. Our Bailey homeplace still stands. Doug Cherry has done wonderful things with that sweet old house. My grandmother, Rachel Agee Bailey, was noted for her rose garden at the side of the house. I can still smell the roses she grew there so long ago.

Take some time and show a young person how to play a tune on that ol' guitar/banjo/mandolin/bass. That's time well spent!
