PINEGROVIN’, BEETHOVEN AND YOU
As many people know, Pine Grove is a very special place, having enriched the lives of those lucky enough to have spent time here. Since arriving as new owners/caretakers a little over a year ago, we have met hundreds of people whose family connection to Pine Grove goes back generations. Not surprisingly, the fondness and melancholy experienced by so many has sparked the creative process resulting in numerous songs having been written over the years.
One of the more prolific and accomplished songwriter/musicians with a long family history here visited us this past summer. Michael Gurley, guitarist for dada (http://dadatheband.com/) and part of the Banchero clan, joined us for a bonfire jam in late June. His song, “Pinegrovin’, Beethoven and You” has to be one of the sweetest songs ever written about the grove. Have a listen and let us know what you think!
Listen here to Pinegrovin’, Beethoven and You (with permission) written and performed by Michael Gurley, accompanied by the Pine Grove Singers. Thank you Michael and friends.
