Funky 85-Yr-Old Kicks Off Shoes, Starts Dancing In Middle Of Nursing Home Concert.

At InspireMore, we’ve seen some amazing and hilarious older folks do some truly incredible things. We’ve seen an old couple still young in their love play an amazing rendition of Old Grey Bonnet and seniors sing their hearts out, but the video we’ve found for you today is truly something special.

Seasoned and internationally touring bluegrass musician, Grizz Lee Marcus, has made quite the name for himself on social media over the last few days when a video of him playing for an older crowd went viral. “I was playing for a sweet group of residents at Traces of Tiger in Tiger, GA. The song is “Foggy Mountain Breakdown,” Grizz explained in the video’s description.

It wasn’t so much the song that’s captured the hearts of millions, but the sweet way Grizz interacts with the older folks and the best surprise ever.

One of the sweet old folks jumped up to dance a jig!

‘Little Dorothy’ as Grizz likes to call her, threw on her dancing shoes for an impromptu performance that went viral for all the right reasons. Grizz played like Earl Scruggs himself while Dorothy danced her heart out. It’s an absolute joy watching them create together.

Grizz makes a habit of visiting the elderly and infirm. Moments like this happen every day for the talented musician, but it’s nice to see one of them touch the hearts of so many people.

The video below may take a moment to load, but it’s well worth the wait!
