Southern Mountain Melodies (Mac and Jenny Traynham) are pleased to announce that we are now partnering with the Floyd Country Store’s Handmade Music School for our weekend workshops.  These camps will take place at both our home in Willis, VA and at the Floyd Country Store in Floyd, VA.  This exciting addition will give the students a wider experience of Floyd’s unique atmosphere.  The focus will remain on learning the regional style in small groups.

We are also offering Saturday workshops devoted to harmony singing or instruction in fiddle, banjo and guitar. When available, they will have other experienced musicians present for teaching. Cost is $70/student with lunch provided.

What a wonderful experience – new music and new friends! Thank you again for all that you both did for me… the whole weekend was quite an adventure.
