Old-time Music Workshops in Floyd, Virginia by Mac and Jenny Traynham.

The Floyd Country Store’s Handmade Music School is partnered with Southern Mountain Melodies  to offer beginning and intermediate workshops for fiddle, guitar, and banjo. Learn to play Blue Ridge-style dance music in a place where dancing to old ­time music has naturally occurred for generations: Floyd County, Virginia. We teach the tried and true mountain dance tunes in a rhythmic style that is full of tradition and excitement.
