The Friday Night Jamboree
Music and fun at the Friday Night Jamboree in Floyd.
After nearly a decade of attending the Jamboree almost on a weekly basis with cameras and video equipment, I find fresh material and new views on a regular basis.
This Friday night, visitors included one from China, who captured the prize for the visitor who traveled the greatest distance to visit the event that is a major part of Floyd County’s music tradition and a featured spot on Virginia’s Crooked Road.
The people who attend the Jamboree on a regular basis, along with visitors there for the first time, have a lot of fun and I can share in that fun by documenting the event in photos and video.
It’s something I hope to continue doing for a long time.
