Floyd County Old Time Music Get-Together, Floyd, Va

The Handmade Music School, along with The Floyd Country Store, is excited to announce the Fourth Annual Floyd County Old Time Music Get-Together at the beautiful EcoVillage in Floyd County, Virginia! This amazing four day camp is scheduled for March 23-26, 2023.

Floyd Eco Village

The camp will take place at the Floyd Events Center, which is part of the Floyd EcoVillage. The facility features beautiful timber-framed buildings on 75 private acres just a few miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway and the charming town center of Floyd. The EcoVillage hosts a performance space with a great wooden dance floor, stage and sound system for concerts and dances, and a variety of teaching spaces. There is a dining hall with a commercial kitchen and The Floyd Country Store will be offering healthy and high-quality meals throughout the weekend.

The Floyd Old Time Music Get-Together offers intermediate and advanced classes in fiddle, banjo, mandolin, guitar, bass, and singing. Afternoon sessions will feature presentations and workshops with visiting masters, and evenings will offer square-dancing, concerts, and lots of tune-playing opportunities.

Come join us for some beautiful Scottish and Irish good times. We will start in Aberdeen Scotland, then take the all night ferry to the Shetland Folk Festival, then return to the Edinburgh Folk Festival there before heading to Baltimore Ireland for The Fiddel Fair festival, and then onward to other amazing Irish towns. Don't miss out.
