Juliette Opry Offers Bluegrass, Country April 7th

Juliette Opry Offers Bluegrass, Country April 7th

My favorite thing in the spring is picking on the porch at Juliette Opry. Now I'm not that great a player, in fact, I'm kinda a background guy . 

I can't play the lightning breaks or cheerful melodies, if somebody ever said wow about my mandolin playing, it wasn't a good thing , I'm pretty sure.

So why, why do I go?  Three things come to mind, or people that is: Sam Whaley, Paul Heath and Bryant Legette.
