Workshops and Panels
At FloydFest, you’ll find an engaging, hands-on learning environment at every twist and turn of the woodsy pathways that lead through our mountain venue. Our Workshop Porch is one of our most picturesque stages, featuring both legends and hidden gems of the Appalachian mountain music culture. Scheduled visitors to the ‘porch scene’ over the years have included the likes of Taj Mahal, Ralph Stanley, Jorma Kaukonen, Chris Thile, and a host of others, and the intimate environment, the stories told and insights shared, are rare and priceless. Beyond the ‘yard’ of the workshop porch, you’ll find hands-on-how-to’s ranging from bee-keeping and primitive-tool making to hula-hooping!
