Mountains of Music Homecoming 2019: Galax Old Fiddlers' Convention
Reynolds Homestead
463 Homestead Lane
Critz, VA 24082

Driving Directions

For more than 80 years each August, Galax Moose Lodge #733 has hosted many of the most talented old-time music performers to compete in the Galax Old Fiddler’s Convention for prize money and the distinction of being judged by a panel of experts as the finest practitioner on particular instruments and styles. Of all the first-place winners on individual instruments, only one can claim the very highest honor each year – being named “Best All-Around Performer” of the Old Fiddler’s Convention. The Homecoming will bring a group of these Best All-Around Performers together for a special concert at the Reynolds Homestead to celebrate the legacy of the Galax Old Fiddler’s Convention. In addition to individual performances, this Who’s Who list of traditional artists will join together to perform as an all-star old time string band. The award winning lineup of musicians includes Richard Bowman, Nate Leath and Aila Wildman on fiddles; Victor Furtado on banjo; Wayne Henderson on guitar; Eli Wildman on mandolin; John Hollandsworth on autoharp; and Martha Spencer on bass. Reynolds Homestead, the historical home of the R. J. Reynolds tobacco family, preserves and presents the stories of the family and the associated enslaved community at Rock Spring Plantation.
