Friday Night Backyard Jamboree
September 18 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm| Donation
Join us on Friday evenings from 6:30pm-9:00pm for the Friday Night Backyard Jamboree outdoor show and livestream. The event will take place on the cottage lawn behind the Floyd Country Store and will be accessible on a first come, first served basis. Admission is free with a suggested donation of $8 to support the musicians and venue during these difficult times. We ask that everyone practice safe social distancing during the show.
Our featured band for the evening is local favorite Twin Creeks Stringband. Andrew Small and Ashley Watkins open up the evening with a gospel set. Admission is by donation, and chairs or blankets are suggested, although some chairs are available. Enter through the side alley to the left of The Floyd Country Store.
THE TWIN CREEKS STRINGBAND is an old-time band from Southwest Virginia where their hard-driving music has been handed down to them through generations of music in Carroll and Franklin County. The band is a continuation of The Dry Hill Draggers, a band formed in the early 1980’s in Franklin County, Virginia who played for dances and festivals for over 30 years. Though the name has changed, the high-energy sound and rock-solid rhythm remains unchanged. The Twin Creeks Stringband continues to play hot fiddle tunes with a driving beat along with strong vocals that will entertain both listeners and dancers alike. The members of the band include Chris Prillaman on fiddle, Jason Hambrick on guitar and vocals, Stacy Boyd on bass, and his son Jared Boyd on banjo.
*This event is dependent on good weather and may be canceled due to rain. Please check our outdoor events page for what to expect at our outdoor shows.
