Thanks to all of you who came out to listen! Below are some pictures from Allison's performance. Allison King was raised in Florence, AL just acros the Tennessee River from the famous Muscle Shoals music sound. Although the Swampers were before her time, there must have been something left over in the water because she took to music like it was her native tongue.

When the box fills up all of the notes are sent back to the office and kept. We have some notes dating back to 1993. Recently we have had a few requests to come and look through our archives of notes to locate a note […]
