Across the Way Productions continues their tradition of throwing some of the Southeastern United States' premier concert events with the 6th annual FloydFest 2007, to take place in Floyd County, VA, along the pristine Blue Ridge Parkway, July 26-29th. They have announced the addition of the North Mississippi Allstars, Forro in the Dark, and the Red Stick Ramblers to an already stellar Line-up!
This year, the four-day musical extravaganza features the "It's in the Mix" theme, highlighting the diversity and all-inclusive nature of the event. The musical genres you can expect to hear at FloydFest range from the cutting-edge sounds of the newest stars in bluegrass such as Blue Highway, 3 Fox Drive, and the Infamous Stringdusters, to returning favorite Americana rockers Donna the Buffalo and Charlottesville-based old time punkers The Hackensaw Boys. The Blue Ridge to Bayou Dance Tent, always a haven for those who like to kick up their heels, will rock till the wee hours with Little Brian & the Zydeco Travelers.
