If Spring is actually, finally, ,here, maybe we can spend more time on the Parkway photographing and filming the beauty of the mountains and the area.

At least we hope so.

One might say the rain on the plain is mainly a pain.

042113jamminFloyd County is an area awash in music and so much of it is free and easily available to the pubic.  With warmer weather arriving each day, Friday nights will features a lot of street music.  Until then, there are free jam sessions at the Country Store on Sundays and concerts in the same store on Saturdays.

Get with the beat.

Roaming the streets on a Friday night

On Stage at The Friday Night Jamboree

On Stage at The Friday Night Jamboree

Haven’t had a chance to roam the streets of Floyd on a Friday night for a long, long time.

Did so this week, taking in the music at Oddfellas Cantina and the Friday Night Jamboree.

Weather still a little brisk for music on the streets but it was still good on stage at the Country Store and at Oddfellas.

Sadness at the Jamboree as Down Home Gospel kicked off the religious hour of music with a prayer and tribute to Guy Weeks, a founder of the group, who died this week.

I still tire easily as part of the recovery from last fall’s motorcycle accident so I wasn’t able to stock around for the music at Dogtown Roadhouse.

Hopefully, more energy next time out.
