"Here is another version of Shady Groves done in sawmill tuning at F . After doing Matty Groves I wanted to make a f sus4 version of this as well since it suites my voice better . This is a song learned by me 40 years ago while we were landing on the moon . I was at Jugtown pottery in Seagrove North Carolina. Ralph Rindzler had left the record of this with Nancy Sweezey and it has never left my head or hands since . Thanks to all who have taught me home made music . Yours Guy "

Seagrove Pottery: Featured in Keeping House!
"Today I ventured down to Seagrove, NC, to visit the area potteries. There are over 100 potterers in the area. I love to go there at least once a year, often at Christmas time to buy presents. Today I went to deliver a copy of my book to two potteries featured in Keeping House. Sadly, one of them is closed. Holly Hill has been one of my favorites places to go in Seagrove for almost 16 years. Today I learned the owner had fallen and passed away. So, the lovely blue dizzle pots are no more.
On the good side, I discovered a new pottery today, Thomas Pottery. Beautiful. I plan to put them in Book 2 and we discussed today the possibility of my having a book signing down there this fall.Look at their lovely place and work!"
