If you’ve enjoyed the music down at The Mussel Shoal you can tune in here to Volume 3 of The Mussel Shoal 100, inspired by artists that did their time at the unlikely site of historic soul, rock and country recordings from which we took inspiration when starting The Mussel Shoal
Dozens of classics came from the famous US recording studio, including “When a Man Loves a Woman,” “I Never Loved a Man (the Way I Love You),” “Mustang Sally” and “I’ll Take You There.”
We get loads of folk telling us it’s not the right spelling ‘Muscle vs Mussels’ well the studio got its name from a former natural feature of the Tennessee River, namely Muscle Shoals, a shallow zone where ‘Mussels’ were gathered. When the area was first settled, the distinct spelling “mussel” to refer to a shellfish had not yet been fully adopted.
So there you go – this is how we named the little shack on the waters edge down in Porthleven -following its roots of great music..
Enjoy the listening
