ST. CLAIR — Toes were tapping and hands were slapping to the beat of bluegrass on a recent Friday night at the Home Folks Acoustic Music House in Parkway near St. Clair. Even people just standing up to walk across the room couldn't resist shuffling along their way. One person standing up to hug a friend as she came in spun around in a circle with her before taking their seats. Others were dancing as they walked in.
