Time for music & fun

After a busy week dominated by expected concern and anger over a proposed natural gas pipeline through Floyd County, the focus this weekend can return to good, old-fashioned entertainment — something that can bring smiles and fun to our area.

Decent weather should bring out the street music as part of the Friday Night Jamboree on Locust Street.  Sugar Run, The Tune Town Band and The Java Brothers play on stage at the Country Store, starting at 6:30 p.m.

And while Bluegrass music will dominate the Jamboree and music on the street, rockers Dangermuffin from South Carolina are on stage at Dogtown Roadhouse, starting at 8 p.m.

The Chantilly Auto Fair also kicks off Friday on Franklin Pike and runs through Sunday.

On Saturday, The Town Jubilee starts at noon in Warren Lineberry Park on Locust Street and features Scott Perry & Three Shades of Blue, Loose Strings and Star City Revival.  The Back Porch Cloggers are also performing.

In the Country Store Saturday afternoon music series, Music in the Mountains features Maggie Sanson & Marya Katz and Porch Dog Revival.

It is time for music, fun and sun.
