With FloydFest 6 now in the history books the focus for music in Floyd County shifts back to the Friday Night Jamboree and the always entertaining acts that play not only on the stage inside but on the street outside.
The Jamboree is still Floyd’s number one music attraction, attracting bluegrass fans from a wide area.
But it’s not the only game in town and those who want to venture a ways out can find even more. The Old Time Fiddler’s Convention kicked off this week in Galax, just as Blacksburg wrapped up Steppin’ Out over the weekend.
The area is awash in events, from FiddleFest in Roanoke (same weekend as FloydFest) to the acts that play the Winter Sun, Jefferson Center and other local and area venues.
The glut of music festivals, events and shows made one local wag wonder lately is the area is suffering from musical overkill.
God we hope not.
