Come make old-time music with your feet while you move to the rhythm of live Appalachian music played by skilled performers and Eastern Shore fixtures: Allen Philpot, Jeff Madson, Sheila Sheppard, Scott Wade, Dan Crockett and Jeff Gray.

 "The music just goes in your ear, down through your soul, and comes out through your feet.’’

Free Admission. Everyone Welcome.
