We had the great pleasure and honor of playing for a community dance at Asbury Grove in Hamilton Massachussets this past Saturday. The Grove is unique, wonderful and its one of our favorite places to play.
Now a year round Christian community, Asbury Grove began life as a Methodist camp meeting site in 1859. The charming Gingerbread style summer cottages and communal buildings that still stand today were built in the late 19th century. Many cottages have been converted for year round use. The postard above depicts the Tabernacle Hall where we played and the community church. They look the same now as they did 100 years ago.
When we arrived, the neighborhood kids were making tacos in the dining hall and the church bells were ringing "Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen". We couldn't help ourselves and started singing too.
The folks who came out to the concert were very appreciative and danced up a storm too. We even got a conga line going.
Feelin' the Spirit....
