My Roots are showing

I grew up in the Appalachian mountains of Pennsylvania, West VA and Maryland.  The music was old, and I really do remember falling to sleep week ends listening to the Grand Ole Opry broadcast from WWVA, Wheeling West Virginia.  I listened to so much bluegrass it is imbedded into my soul.  I broke out for a while and listened to a lot of folk, which I still like.  I also enjoy a some rock music.  I listened to very little mountain music for years though, not so much from rebellion as distancing myself.  I will never forget about 10 years ago, I heard some banjo and guitar and my feet started to move.  All those years disappeared and I was dancing on the porch again.  Now I remember my guitar playing Uncles as heroes.  I am working in Dallas, but my music is still from the hills.
