Robert Perry, The Mountain Man, plays the mountain bass with dancing girlfriend, Sharen. She explains that “Robert always has a JAM IN, it’s not a band. Whoever shows up is free to play and sing.” For the last 20 years, he’s been playing every Wednesday and both are daily cloggers who make their rounds.
