Warming hearts with music is a Good Deed
GREEN COVE SPRINGS – Every Monday at the Clayton and Mildred Senior Center, the seniors have the pleasure of listening to songs that bring back memories of the past. Three faithful men, the Trout Creek Troubadours, play instruments and sing. Ben Ross plays the guitar, center, Ervin Ashe plays the mandolin, at right, and Edsel Moody plays bass, at left. This group has been playing together for about six years. They present old country music and songs requested by the audience. All three say that they love sharing their talent with people who love hearing it, and they receive a blessing from coming. They were all three interested in music at a young age. Ben Ross got his first guitar at age 12. He played a little in high school, joined the Navy at age 20, got married at age 21, and did not play much for 43 years. He took guitar lessons at age 64. He joined his first band in 2005. Esdel Moody has played bass for about 50 years. Ervin Ashe has been playing about 45 years and has been singing all his life. Such classics as “I Can’t Help It If I’m Still in Love With You,” “Here is the Reason,” “One Day at a Time” and “I Want to Go Home” thrill the listeners as memories flood their minds. Looking around, attendees can be seen privately singing the words as the men sing and play.
