The show is rooted in Floyd, VA where a musical and artistic community provides endless inspiration for the show, which appears live at the Floyd Country Store on the first Saturday of each month, September through May. Anna Roberts-Gevalt & Elizabeth LaPrelle hosted the first 5 years and brought the show to life in September 2011 to an appreciative and captive audience and now entering into its sixth season, the show promises to be better than ever! Anna & Elizabeth have moved on but have handed down a well crafted show that will continue into the future.
Highlights of past seasons include: the melodrama of Myrtle Vermillion (a small-town autoharp sensation on her first visit to the big city); the entertaining new Ballad-style GPS–one product we wish was real!–and the Poetry Olympic Games, complete with Edgar Allen Poe-Vaulting.
Musical guests from past seasons include award winning flatpicker and guitar maker Wayne Henderson, banjo player Riley Baugus (whose credits include work on the soundtrack of Cold Mountain), West Virginia storyteller Jimmy Costa, singer Carol Elizabeth Jones, and a host of local favorites including Floyd’s own Mac & Jenny Traynham, Janet Turner, Chance McCoy (now of Old Crow Medicine Show) and Blacksburg’s Black Twig Pickers.
