Upcoming Performances and Events

Wayne Weekend.jpg
Wayne - Movie.jpg
FILM SCREENING, June 20th, 10 am - 4 pm, Every Hour on the Hour!


A film by Shawn Lind, Appalshop. Nestled near the foot of Mount Rogers is the small town of Rugby, Virginia. It is here that one can find the home and workshop of Wayne Henderson, a skilled craftsman and respected musician. Wayne was taught and encouraged by those around him — including the folk hero E.C. Ball and the kind and generous fiddle maker, Albert Hash — and awarded the National Endowment for the Art’s National Heritage Fellowship for his work as a luthier and musician.


Producing over 400 guitars for the likes of Doc Watson and Eric Clapton, the quality of Wayne’s instruments have created a famous waiting list of ten years. Equally as famous is Wayne’s reputation for being generous, friendly, and approachable, with many travelers along the Crooked Road learning this first hand as visitors to Wayne’s shop and music festival every year.


From Wood to Singing Guitar is a chance for those who can’t make it to Rugby to have that same experience through an intimate portrait that enables viewers to watch a master practice his craft and play the songs of home.

Carley Arrowood

along with

The Trailblazers

Saturday, July 10, 2021, 7:00 pm

With the release of her very first singles for Mountain Home Music Company, Carley Arrowood has begun to make her mark as an award-winning singer, a songwriter, and of course as a cutting-edge fiddler. You may recognize her from her time performing with the husband/wife duo Darin & Brooke Aldridge, but Carley is forming a new path all of her own. Her vocals are unmistakable, but her voice on the fiddle is also forceful and bright, winning her the IBMA Momentum Award for


Instrumentalist of the Year in 2017. Carley shares the stage with her sister Autumn on mandolin, boyfriend Daniel Thrailkill on guitar, and longtime friends Paul Watson and Sawyer Whitman on bass and banjo. Together they bring a refreshingly original sound to acoustic music that will leave you feeling exhilarated. 

Based in Rowan County, NC, the Trailblazers add energy and passion to a progressive sound in Bluegrass music. After forming in 2016, the Trailblazers have continued to live up to their name by pushing the boundaries and adding to their repertoire, creating original music and adding original arrangements to classic songs. They have been recognized by top festivals and bluegrass music events, taking home First Place in the 2017 Merlefest Band Contest, as well as the 2018 SPBGMA International Band Contest. In 2018 the Trailblazers were also awarded the IBMA Momentum Award for Band of the Year, being recognized as


an emerging band to keep an eye on in the bluegrass community. In October 2020, The Trailblazers released their sophomore album, “Space and Time”. The band is comprised of Alex Edwards on banjo, Daniel Thrailkill on guitar, Jonah Horton on mandolin, and Will Thrailkill on bass.
