082806musicians2.jpg 082806musicians1.jpgIt never fails. I do a photo layout of faces from the crowd at The Friday Night Jamboree and someone posts a whine about "where are pictures of the musicians?"

As if I’ve never posted photos of musicians. Good grief. No photographer in Floyd (and there are many) has taken or posted more photos of musicans.

You want musicians? OK, you got musicians.

The highlight, as noted in a previous post, of last Friday night’s jamboree was the return of fiddler Clyde Williams (above) and his old time country band, a longtime crowd favorite.

The Jamboree is long on tradition and two groups that play there most often are Clyde’s and "Barbershop Grass" (left).

But the music at the Jamboree is more than just the musicians on stage.

Some of the best bluegrass around can be found from those who jam on the streets outside (below) and some come each Friday to hear the street musicians and never make it inside. It’s all part of the fun of Friday night music in Floyd. 082806musicians3.jpg
