Ivy Sheppard

As I was bumming around watching videos of people playing old time at festivals (my current top #1 hobby), I came across Bill Birchfield & Ivy Sheppard:

Turns out Ivy was just recently running for mayor of Mt Airy, NC, which I think it super cool (she’s my exact same age). Looks like she lost though. :(
