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 on March 14 – 17, 2019. Instructors include Alice Gerrard, Elizabeth LaPrelle, Jere Canote, Greg Canote, Kilby Spencer, Emily Spencer, Becky Hill Mac Traynham, and Andy Buckman.
The camp will take place at the Floyd Events Center which is part of 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 center of Floyd. The facility can house about 60 people (cabins and an off-grid Bermed Lodge). 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.
