Rube and Ellen


Now that the majority of the textile mills have closed down, the mill houses, that once housed the workers, are being dressed up with paint and converted into trendy living spaces for young students and couples, like newly-weds Rube and Ellen.


Ellen has just started her master’s at the University of Georgia and she is thrilled to have found such a nice place to live.

Rube was an original member of The BlueBellies Band. Arann and Rube were happy to be reunited, if only for a night, so they could rekindle their music love. It was a complete coincidence that they dressed exactly alike on this day….or was it?

jeanie sings

and when jeanie sings people listen. she has an amazing voice, kind of like janice joplin and she is able to sing in four octaves….most people can only sing in one or two. the most amazing thing is that when gennie sings you can hardly tell that she is blind.

jeanie is singing with the bluebellies band a local favorite in petaluma, california.
