Where Music is Life

Leaving a Legacy


After playing guitar all these years I now notice how things get handed down.  My mom and dad had 10 children and 8 have had 2 or more children.  You do the math and you will see a lot of first cousins in my family tree.  At a recent family get-together we sat around and played guitars and other instruments.  It amazed me how many aspiring musicians and singers have evolved from my Dad’s(an only child) influence.  He was a fiddle player, guitarist and singer for the last 50 years and his legacy of music continues in the family.  He simply loved to play and sing and growing up we spent a lot of weekend nights at barn dances here in the south and some of our stories have become legend among the younger generations.  We have remained close through this common thread of music and I thank God everyday for his blessings.  Thank you dad and may you rest in heaven knowing how many lives you have affected and blessed.
