The Floyd Country Store Handmade Music School and Southern Mountain Melodies have teamed up to offer weekend music workshops. These intensive weekend getaways are designed for anyone who wants to immerse themselves in a weekend-long Floyd music experience!
Mac and Jenny Traynham have been producing these weekend music workshops for music lovers who are interested in experiencing a weekend of fun and classes at their home in Floyd County, Virginia. The focus will be on learning the regional style in small groups, with limited class sizes. The workshops will now incorporate experiences at the Floyd Country Store and throughout the Floyd community.
The Floyd Country Store will anchor the weekend experience while The Traynhams will provide in-depth instruction in a comfortable, relaxed environment, and students will be able to experience a getaway weekend in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Friday nights will include a visit to the Floyd Country Store where local musicians play for flat footers inside, and numerous jams occur on the street when the weather permits. Students will also have access to a large collection of old time music on CD’s and cassettes which the Traynhams have collected and drawn inspiration from.
