Calendars by Our Dear Friend Sophie Doco

On a winter evening, one of our Floyd Country Store regulars came up to us with concern for a French woman who arrived at the Store who could barely speak English and had no place to stay. It was a Honky Tonk Thursday and she was here for the music. She didn’t know where she was going to stay or how she would get around but she knew Floyd was the place she wanted to come to learn how to play Appalachian Mountain Music. It turned out that she spoke English very well, and before long, our community welcomed her in. She had a place to stay and made good friends. 

To her dismay, she had to return to France, but she came back again this fall to continue her musical studies. She had to go home again before the end of the year but before she left, she played a couple of tunes at the Jamboree last Friday night, December 15.

Along with her musical gifts she is a talented artist. She has produced a 2024 calendar of her whimsical drawings that is now available for purchase at the Store. See more of Sophie’s work on her Instagram page.
