Kickoff of the Backyard Jamboree in 2020

The Floyd Country Store hoped to kick off the second season of its “Backyard Jamboree,” an outdoor version of the internationally-acclaimed Friday night version of the indoor event that COVID-19 sidelined more than a year ago, but Mother Nature kept the freezing chill of Thursday around long enough to cool off plans for the kickoff and delayed the start until next Friday, weather permitted.

The video here was shot at the opening of the Backyard version last year. Let’s hope things continue to improve and the full Jamboree can soon bring packed Friday nights of Traditional Old Time Music to the store and the streets of Floyd.
