The Swingers can also boast of appearances at New York´s Lincoln Center, the Grand Ole Opry, the Legends of Western Swing Festival, the ´Midnight Jamboree´, and many concerts and private events in the mid-South area.
After being abandoned by her husband in a KOA campground, Sissy Jaspers must return home to Grace, West Virginia and rebuild her broken life. Along for the journey is Hazel, a sweet and spirited older lady, who has the gift of making everything taste better. With help from Sissy´s father and brother, the two women turn an abandoned haunted house into a charming café. The Kitchen House, named for its resident ghosts, is a place of wonder where the living and dead coexist. The mystic café attracts patrons haunted by guilty secrets and burdened with grief. With a regular host of customers and a jamboree of spirits, The Kitchen House becomes the perfect venue for medium Pixie Moon-Dust to perform her psychic readings. As the physical world and spiritual world become intertwined, the lost souls are taught lessons of forgiveness and acceptance, which leads them to redemption and love. 1. Language: English.
