The Handmade Music School, along with The Floyd Country Store, is excited to announce the First 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 15 – 18, 2018.
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.
