Anna and Elizabeth are hosts of the Floyd Country Store Radio Show and have thankfully begun releasing some music on youtube. Their pure sound benefits from a serene outdoors setting. Stay tuned to their site for news of an upcoming album featuring Bluegrass pioneer Alice Gerrard.
The Floyd Country Store Radio Show is a variety program unlike any you’ll hear on radio. It’s like a Mountain Stage/Prairie Home Companion crossover but more fun. Down home fiddle music, great Country voices, comedy skits and a whole lot more. Attending a taping is at the top of my wish-list. Here are just a couple of West Virginia-related highlights…
Old Crow Medicine Show’s Chance McCoy used to be in a band called Old Sledge with Floyd Country Store Radio co-host Anna Roberts-Gevalt. It’s a small world after all. McCoy was featured on the show in February 2012.
Charleston’s own John Lilly was featured in January 2013 – his Hank Williams covers are particularly noteworthy. You can also hear several John Lilly tracks on his Sonicbids site.
