The lights were burning late at the Cape Girardeau County History Center in Jackson Saturday night. Doc Jordan and Friends were having an old-fashioned pickin’.
Harry Chapin done well
Friends this evening with Doc – Steve Jordan – were Pastor Stan Hargess, Dr. Hugh Tewis, Terry Wright, Barney Hartline and Carla Jordan.
Doc and Wife Carla teamed up to sing Mr. Tanner in a way that would have made Harry Chapin proud.
A toe-tappin’ crowd
Some combination of players show up monthly. The next pickin’ will be at the history center from 7 to 9 on Saturday, October 17. A handbill says to “bring your banjo, guitar, mandolin, dulcimer, bass, or just pull up a chair to sing along or listen.”
A couple who didn’t know about the event saw the lights, heard the music and were made to feel welcome.
