Civil War Reenactment.
NINA RIDGE — People who drove past Freda Johnson’s store Friday night on Nina Ridge may have found themselves compelled to stop, drawn by the toe-tapping music.
Johnson and her sons, Ray Johnson and Steve Moore, hosted “Pickin’ on the Porch,” the third Third Friday community get-together.
The event drew about 150 people who came to hear the music, play checkers and cards, visit with friends and eat hamburgers, fries and free popcorn.
Guests came from as far away as
Dan Waters of Payne and Waters served as emcee for a line-up of professional and local performers, who volunteered their talents.
Seven-year-old Alex Miller, accompanying himself on guitar, led off the evening’s
Banjo player Andy Blythe sang some interactive songs and ballads.
Blythe is famous for his participation in the TV show, “HeeHaw,” his many commercial jingles and his folk ballads.
His wife joined him for a few of his songs.
Danny Jordan, on guitar, was joined by his young daughter on fiddle, as they sang and played country favorites.
Throughout the evening, Payne and Waters presented gospel and nostalgic oldies, as well as, some original material by Waters.
Libby, Darrell and Donna Tuggle topped off the musical festivities with hand-clapping Bluegrass music that prompted people to get up and dance. The performance was especially heartwarming, since it was the first time in many years that the Tuggles had taken the stage.
Throughout the evening, many people commented on how much joy they received from neighbors, families and friends coming together to enjoy the pleasures of a simpler time.
