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.
