Some of my earliest memories revolve around the art of "making music". I was blessed to grow up in a musical family where it seemed someone was always pickin' & grinnin' in the kitchen. At a young age I remember falling asleep to the sounds of guitars, mandolins, and high lonesome tenors. (I'm the little girl in the photo)
As an adult I treasure the tradition of music and pass it along to my children. I hope you enjoy the Pickin' & Grinnin' spots I feature.
