Old Time Dance with The New Ballards Branch Bogtrotters at FCS
June 17, 2017 : 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$5.00
Join us at The Floyd Country Store for an Old Time Dance with the New Ballard Branch Bogtrotters.
About 25 years ago a group of musicians from the Galax, VA area formed a new band. The New Ballards Branch Bogtrotters took their name, in part from the original Bogtrotters of the 1930’s also because band leader Dennis Hall lives on Ballards Branch. The New Ballard’s Branch Bogtrotters continue to play in the traditional Appalachian string‐band style often playing for square dances around the region. Old time music is alive and well, and continues to attract fans of all ages. The New Ballard Branch Bogtrotters remain a driving force in carrying the traditional music of the Virginia/Carolina Blue Ridge into the new millenium.
