Mountain Music

Mountain Music: Digital Photography from Floyd County, Virginia by Fred First
It’s a fur piece from Goose Creek to Ferny Creek–a good two-thirds the length of Floyd County. But for a house concert like last night, it is worth the drive.

Some faces were familiar: characters from around town, friends of the hosts, and some folks we’d met before only at previous gatherings like this, and in this house. And there are always a few initiates, first-timers who appreciate old-time traditional Appalachian mountain music on the close and personal stage in someone’s livingroom.

We’re hoping before the summer is over to host a house concert here, in the AnnEx. Or heck, maybe we’ll just take the lawn chairs out under the stars along the banks of Goose Creek and let’er rip.

  1. i like this growing trend of house concerts. we never had “official” concerts in our house, but there were always impromptu sessions, growing up with musicians for parents. i love the picture…..
