About the Club

New River Community College is located in a region rich in music that has been passed down through generations. Traditional music is as much source of pride for many area residents as it is a family legacy. Talented musicians - both instrumentally and vocally, crafters of musical instruments and those with a deep appreciation of the music gather monthly at the college for its Fiddle, Banjo and Dance Club jamborees. Held since 1991 on the second Saturday of each month between October and April, the free music events have become a gathering of like-minded people who are interested in enjoying, preserving and perpetuating the great old-time and bluegrass music of their ancestors.
The club hosts at least one paid concert a year that brings bluegrass and country greats like Rhonda Vincent, Doyle Lawson, Dailey and Vincent, Gene Watson, Marty Stuart, Jimmy Fortune and Vince Gill to the college. Many of these performers have made multiple appearances and drawn record-breaking crowds. Ralph Stanley, Olen Gardner, Big Country Bluegrass, John Viers, Whitetop Mountain, The Adam Larkey Band and many others have also performed here and entertained thousands of local music fans. Tim Jones is the director of the NRCC Fiddle Banjo and Dance Club.

MISSION STATEMENT:

The mission of the Fiddle, Banjo and Dance Club is to foster, preserve and promote the rich musical legacy that has been passed down through generations in the New River Valley and to provide opportunities for youth of the region to learn about and appreciate their heritage. Traditional bluegrass and old-time music is featured reflecting its impact on the culture of the area and how lives and communities can be enriched by these contributions.
