A Fond Farewell and a Big Hello!

 After six months in the perfect indoor setting at the Collierville (TN) United Methodist Church and their Common Cup Coffee Shop, we will play for one more night on April 5, 2013, and then head outdoors on April 12, 2013, to the Historic Town Square for six months of pickin' and fellowship under the trees, at the gazebo, by the town clock, near the old train depot, or along the sidewalks that line the square! The spring of the year shows off the magnificent plantings and lush green that are ours to enjoy! May we say that we love and enjoy both locations and we feel so blessed to have those locations!

We even count among our bluegrass friends that young couple at The Rusty Propeller Antique Store in Rossville, TN. Owners Geoff and Jessica and their children have made us feel right at home on special occasions. The great news is that on Friday nights when it is rainy and/or cold at the square, we can have our pickin' at the antique store! Fantastic for us! The weather is unpredictable, especially early in the season, so we're always glad to have a Plan B. It's just across the street from The Wolf River Cafe, too, where Susan and her crew wait to serve you some of the finest catfish, hush puppies, and green tomato pickles to be found anywhere! Oh, and unforgettable good ol' sweet tea! Yummmm!  

We anticipate that the weather will be close to perfect when we return to the town square on April 12, 2013. Hose off the lawn chairs, grab a bite of dinner at home or at one of the fine restaurants on the square, load up the vehicle, and join us!

We even expect that group of hibernating pickers to come out from wherever it is that they go during the winter! Come on out to the square, y'all! It's time to pick!

This smiling bunch of bluegrass jammers is more than ready for some pickin'on the square! Join 'em for some fast tunes, slow tunes, and even some tunes you may not even know yet. You can always learn a new tune or two! Dust off that ol' fiddle, loosen up your fingers, and let 'er rip!

Yonder's Frank, Pete, Gerald, Coley, Arn, Joe, James, Cecil, and Bobby! There are groups pickin' all over the square on any typical Friday evening. We just took a picture of those with the happiest faces at that moment!

We look forward to a great spring, summer and early fall at the beautiful  Historic Town Square! All we need is YOU! You and your family and friends make this event so successful! Welcome to our 14th glorious season at the square!

Pick away!
