Bring a lawn chair or blanket. This concert will be at located at the Blue Ridge Institute Farm Museum at 20 Museum Dr. in Ferrum, VA. ~~~~ Five Mile Mountain Road, a string band based in Boone Mill, Virginia, is fronted by Billy Hurt on fiddle, and includes Seth Boyd on banjo and guitar, Brennen Ernst on guitar and banjo, and Steven Dowdy on upright bass. This is a band that loves to romp through the great old time and early bluegrass songs and tunes and knows how to launch dancers onto the floor. For extra entertainment, the band throws in early country and swing music for good measure. ~~~~ Larry Sigmon of Callaway and Martha Spencer of Whitetop Mountain get more music out of the clawhammer banjo and an upright bass than many groups with three times the instruments. As their dedicated following of old time dance enthusiasts can attest, it is hard to find another group that can lay down as infectious a beat when Martha’s slap bass style is combined with Larry’s rock solid old time banjo playing. Larry and Martha are both fine singers, have hundreds of songs in their repertoire, and are simply great entertainers. The perfect duo for a Blue Ridge Barn Dance. ~~~~ The Crooked Road’s Mountains of Music Homecoming is made possible by the support of the
