Opie's Candy Store

At the age of 15, Andy’s love for Jack Teagarden (Trombonist) and swing music led him to make a momentous purchase from a Spiegel catalog. He purchased a trombone. Andy said, “it took me five and a half months, but then I got this trombone and I was the happiest boy in all of North Carolina...It was the most beautiful thing I’d ever owned. For two months I admired it and polished it and wondered what to do with it because there was nobody in our town to teach music. Then I heard about this minister (Rev. Edward Timothy Mickey) with the Moravian Church (Grace Moravian). People said he knew all about music...For three years, he gave me a free lesson a week. Ed Mickey taught me to sing and to read music and to play every brass instrument there was in the band. He also talked me into studying voice and I wound up singing solos all over Mount Airy. The joy that brought me made me know that I had to pursue it.” #followyourdreams 🎼 Big thank you to Rev. Mickey and the Moravian Church for teaching Andy music 🎶.
