11th Annual Henry Reed Memorial Fiddlers Convention

Please join us on June 14 and 15, 2013 for the our annual musical event honoring the life and music of local old-time fiddler Henry Reed. This festival is located along the scenic New River in Henry's hometown of Glen Lyn, VA in Giles County.  This family-friendly event offers a variety of fun activities over the weekend for the entire family. 

The festival officially kicks off at 5 PM on Friday with a set of featured bands, including the Reed Family Band (with 2 of Henry's sons and renown fiddler and folklorist Alan Jabbour).  Individual and band competitions begin on Saturday for both old-time and bluegrass. 

Plenty of camping space is available on-site, and there will be an assortment of fun-filled music and river-related activities available. You'll find plenty of other opportunities in Giles County to enjoy the beauty of nature, dine on great local cuisine, or just relax on the river .

Come spend a memorable weekend in Southwest Virginia in beautiful Giles County!
