Local musicians donated their time and talents Saturday night for a benefit concert to help the Floyd library raise enough money to qualify for matching funds for their expansion project.

Those who shelled out $10 apiece saw and heard music ranging from blues, country rock, bluegrass, old-time mountain, jazz and easy listening from groups like Accoustic Review (above) and Mac and Jenny Traynham (below) while M.C. Rob Neukirch (right) kept the audience in stitches with a collection of jokes and constant patter (that’s bass player Chris Luster in the background).

Bernie Coveney put the show together at the Floyd County Store where owner Woody Crenshaw donated the space.

It was, by all accounts, an evening with just the right mixture of fun and fundraising.

If you missed the show you can still help the fundraising effort by getting out your checkbook and dropping it by the library in Floyd.
