|art begets art|
Saturday night, Ivy & David Sheppard and Sarah Osborne, better known as the South Carolina Broadcasters, came to Middletown with their fiddles, banjos and guitars in tow. No need for amplification in our intimate space, they were thrilled with the sound quality of the room. Later they gave thanks for the attentiveness of the audience, as musicians often do at TBT, explaining that there aren't many places that are dedicated listening rooms.
One of the best parts of Buttonwood's shows are the stories that the artists tell. Saturday night was no exception and we heard a few, including one about Hank Williams and his radio shows. After a standing ovation by the full house (31 patrons and 4 TBT volunteers), the trio played a rousing song to which the audience sang along. The joy level was high that night and folks left almost amazed at what a good time they had.
