Friday nights in the Spring, Summer and Fall means music on the streets of Floyd and with cooler than normal weather and rain this year the tradition has been a little slow in starting.
But music filled the streets on this past Friday night and what visitors to the town heard was more than traditional bluegrass with songs like “The Boxer” from Simon and Garfunkel mixing in with “Rocky Top” and more.
The music on the streets along with the Friday Night Jamboree and performances at other music venues along Locust Street meant summer is approaching and the unique nature of the end of the normal work week is alive and well here in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
The weather is warming and so are the guitars, banjos, fiddles and more.
The music continued into Saturday with the Americana Afternoons in the Country Store and the start of Oak Grove’s music season with the White Top Mountain Band,
