Forever Now, a Floyd based eclectic folk rock band, creates original songs and delivers them in an entertaining and engaging style. Forever Now's unique musical style fuses traditional European folk tunes with more contemporary American rock and folk elements. From the rousing crowd pleaser "Is it the End or is it the Beginning" to the haunting, thought provoking "Lullaby for Andrea", Bavarian born musician-artist Starroot shows real versatility as a songwriter. She sings and plays accordion, guitar, and harmonica. Walt Flythe plays guitar and flute, and Rick Hall, plays bass guitar.

The concert is from 12 to 3 this Saturday rain or shine, with an open mic from 1-2. Musicians are welcome to bring their instruments and sit in for a jam or take to the stage for a solo. All musical styles are welcome... Gospel to Rock & everything in between.

Bring your dancing feet & kick up your heels or just relax in the gentle arms of the Blue Ridge Mountains for an afternoon of simple family fun.
