2019 Floyd County Old Time Music Get-Together
March 14, 2019 - March 17, 2019
The Handmade Music School, along with The Floyd Country Store, is excited to announce the Second Annual Floyd County Old Time Music Get Together at the beautiful EcoVillage in Floyd County, Virginia! This amazing four day camp will take place in early spring March 14 – 17, 2019.
The camp will take place at the Floyd EcoVillage. The facility features beautiful timber-framed buildings on 75 private acres just a few miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway and the charming town of Floyd. The EcoVillage hosts a performance space with a great wooden dance floor, stage and sound system for concerts and dances and a variety of teaching spaces. There is a dining hall with a commercial kitchen and we will be offering high-quality and healthy homemade food.
The Floyd Old Time Music Get-Together offers intermediate and advanced classes in fiddle, banjo, guitar dance and singing. Afternoon sessions will feature presentations and workshops with visiting masters, and evenings will offer square-dancing, concerts and lots of tune-playing opportunities.
