FloydFest, the summer music festival just off the Blue Ridge Parkway, is now part of the Crooked Road.

Jonathan Romeo, interim executive director of The Crooked Road, which traces the history and heritage of Virginia music from Ferrum to Bristol, presented event organizers with a banner recognizing them as an Affilated Partner.

Notes a press release on the recognition:

“FloydFest has a tradition of presenting high quality traditional music performances which exemplify the culture and music of the region” notes Jonathan Romeo, Interim Executive Director of The Crooked Road. “We are proud to recognize this venue as a Crooked Road Affiliated Partner. The Crooked Road’s venues are an important part of the assets of our region”.

The Floyd Country Store and County Records in Floyd are two of the eight "major venues" of The Crooked Road. FloydFest becomes one of 31 "partners" along the road.
