The hills are alive with music this weekend


The weather heats up and so does the music scene in and around Floyd County this weekend.

The Friday Night Jamboree kicks off at 6:30 p.m. with Olin & Francis Gardner with Friends for the gospel hour, followed by The Tune Town Old Time String Band at 7:30 p.m. and The Snow Creek Old Time Band at 9:00.

Over at Dogtown Roadhouse, PORCH 40 takes the stage with rocking funk at 8:00 p.m.

On Saturday, Americana Afternoon at The Floyd Country Store offers Boston singer & songwriter Mark Stapakoff at noon, followed by Eli Conley, a singer & songwriter from Berkley, CA. At 2:30 p.m., Todd Day Wait’s Pigpen brings their country, blue & folk from New Orleans to Floyd.

Sunday means music jams.  Old-Time musicians, hosted by Mac Traynham, play from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at The Floyd Country Store while Ben Silcox gathers the Bluegrass jammers from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

At Dogtown, it will be the Second Sunday Songwriter’s Circle at 3:00 p.m.

The hills, somebody once sang, are alive with the sounds of music.
