Music from the Blind Pig Gang

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 and grinnin in the kitchen. I often fell asleep to the sounds of guitars, mandolins, and high lonesome harmonies. I’m the little girl in the photo below.

Picking and Grinning in the Kitchen

As an adult I treasure the tradition of music handed down through the generations of my family and I share my family’s music here on the Blind Pig & the Acorn.

There’s a weekly Picking and Grinning in the Kitchen Spot which features a video of the Blind Pig Gang or The Pressley Girls or a combination of both!

You can find us on youtube here:
