For more than 80 years each August, Galax Moose Lodge #733 has hosted many of the most talented old-time and bluegrass 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. For the first time ever, the Homecoming will bring these Best All-Around Performers together for a special concert at the Blue Ridge Music Center 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 two stellar bands one bluegrass and one old-time. The all-star lineup of musicians includes Eddie Bond, Richard Bowman, Jake Krack, Nate Leath, and Ivy Phillips on fiddle; Victor Furtado and Ivan Overstreet on banjo; Scott Fore and Wayne Henderson on guitar; Aaron Williams on mandolin; John Hollandsworth on autoharp; Victor Dowdy and Martha Spencer on bass; and Leslie Dunbar on vocals.
