It’s a southern gathering like you’d hear about when folks are talking about the good old days, but it’s happening now - every Tuesday night at the Cedar Grove Community Center.  You’d think you are way out in the country, but you’re only about 15 miles west of the Atlanta airport.

It’s bluegrass, old time, country, and gospel music - homegrown and enjoyed along with a spread of food that might remind you of dinner on the grounds.

I heard about it when I met Mike Fleming, one of the Cedar Grove regulars.
