Next Saturday-May 3rd Granny Sue, Appalachian Storyteller is coming to see me! I met Granny Sue online back when I first started the Blind Pig. As soon as I stumbled onto her blog: Granny Sue’s News and Reviews I knew I had found a kindred soul. Since we first met we’ve gotten to know each other better through our blogs and shared emails-but we’ve never met in person. A few years back Granny Sue came to NC-but she was father east than here and the logistics just couldn’t be worked out for us to meet on that trip.
A few months back, Granny Sue (Susanna Holstein) wrote with good news! She was coming to Gainesville GA-a mere 2 hours away from Brasstown. Granny Sue graciously offered to come to my house in Brasstown and tell a few stories-I quickly said PLEASE DO!!
One thing led to another and the small event got bigger and bigger! The details are-on May 3rd-6:00pm @ the Martins Creek Community Center an Appalachian Celebration will be held. All are invited to attend-there is no admission price; however donations will be much appreciated!
Along with Granny Sue, The Pressley Girls, the Kudzu Kickers (Chatter and Chitter’s clogging team), and the Blind Pig Gang will also be performing. Gayle Larson will play the spoons as everyone is getting situated so be sure to come a little early to hear her.
I know most of you live too far away to attend, but just in case you live close enough to come-here’s the address of the community center: 4533 Martins Creek Rd, Murphy, NC 28906. The address is actually the physical address of a school-Mountain Youth School. Martins Creek Community center literally shares a parking lot with the school-so if you find the school you’ve found the center too. Click here for a map of the area.
Whether you are able to attend or not, I would ask that you help me publicize this event in an effort to celebrate Appalachia by sharing the details through email, on your blog, facebook page, twitter feed, or any other social media platform you use.
Thank you in advance for any help you may offer-and I hope to see you there! And for those of you who live too far away-rest assured we will video all that we can so you can enjoy the night too!
