This is an ink drawing of the old store in Shingletown where all the old time musicians would gather. Doc Watson, Fred Price, Clint Howard, Frank Grayson, and many many more, some famous, others unnamed, but fine musicians nonetheless. Old time music is made to be heard in person, and this was the place to find it for a great many years. Music at the old store lasted until it burned down, sadly, several years ago. The reference picture for this drawing was taken from a photo in the collection of Frank Grayson's family.
Do you recognize any of these musicians? Some of the finest played here, and it didn't cost a dime to sit and listen.
