Now, this was really and truly an old time barn dance. It is apparently an annual event held at the Timpner Barn. And let me tell you, this is no ordinary barn! First off, here are some pictures I took with my camera phone. Wish I had better ones, but these will have to do:
Notice the wall to our left in the photo above. That is actually part of the old gymnasium floor from the local high school. It says "PANTHERS" on it. Bill has anyone that played basketball there sign it.
I had a special treat regarding the band that night. Two of my former students were playing in the band! They are sisters Amanda and Gloria from Nashville. Beautiful harmonies and beautiful twin fiddles! The girls aren't actually members of the band, but were just filling in for the evening. The music was fantastic! Amanda invited me up to play a few songs, as well.
The Pickin' Chicks did a wonderful job filling in during the band's break. They played about 10 songs in all. I was so proud! Bill even pulled a vintage sign off his barn to give to the girls. Thank you, Bill!!! Take a look at the girls with their sign below:
