We have some great news…our friends Gap Civil and Connor Vlietstra and Trevor Holder are going to help us ring in the New Year Floyd Radio Show style! Here is more about our guests:
Formed in 2017, Gap Civil is a hard-driving oldtime and heart-breaking traditional country band based in Sparta, NC with Caroline Noel Beverley on guitar, Chris Johnson on banjo, Lucas Pasley on fiddle, Kyle Dean Smith on bass. Gap Civil’s music is rooted in the old time traditions of our region, a diamond-shaped area extending roughly from Sparta, Lowgap, Galax, and Whitetop. They also perform traditional country and original tunes and songs.
Conner Vlietstra comes from the East Tennessee State University Bluegrass, Old Time, and Country Music program, and is a native of Red Bank, TN, near Chattanooga. His first love is old time country music. His grandparents and great-grandparents inspired him to learn banjo as a youngster, and Vlietstra is determined to do his part to preserve the music as a community tradition through his studies.
Trevor Holder grew up in Ringgold, GA, and got started on the banjo when he was 13 years old. Now 20, he has absorbed the music of many of the greats, and has been a fixture at the fiddlers conventions in the area ever since. In 2019 he was awarded first place on banjo at the prestigious Old Fiddlers Conventions in Galax, VA, as sure a citation as you could want on the five string.
