Join us at the Floyd Country Store on Saturday, January 18, 2020 at 7:30pm for an old-time dance with Gap Civil. Tickets are $8 at the door.
Gap Civil is an old time band based in Sparta, North Carolina, that plays hard-driving fiddle tunes, but also knows how to slow it down for waltzes and traditional country songs. Lucas Pasley plays the fiddle backed up by Caroline Beverley on guitar and Chris Johnson on banjo. They play with different bassists, such as Stacy Boyd, Stu Geisbert, Sam Linkous, and Chloe Mylet.
Their music is rooted in the traditions of the region: a diamond-shaped area extending roughly from Sparta to Lowgap, Galax, and Whitetop. They formed the band to play at their local square dance, the Alleghany Jubilee, but they also play at other dances and concerts in the region, as well as fiddlers conventions.
