Alleghany County has a rich tradition of old-time and bluegrass music. The music is more shared than performed with an unspoken expectation that audiences are active participants. Whether the audience dances, claps or simply pats their feet, everyone take a role.
This Saturday night, June 20th at 5:00 pm, The Crooked Road Ramblers will take the stage at Crouse Park in Sparta, NC. This event is part of the Summer Jamboree. These are family friendly events where neighbors spend time with neighbors and visitors are treated neighborly.
The Crooked Road Ramblers are one of the region’s premier old-time bands. Kilby Spencer furnishes a driving fiddle that is played in the tradition of Thornton Spencer and Albert Hash . Last year the Ramblers garnered 1st place titles at the Ashe County and Fries Fiddlers Conventions. They came in 2nd in Alleghany County and Galax.
Their competitive success is overshadowed by their pure passion for music. While they may call some of the outlying areas of Grayson and Ashe Counties home, the Crooked Road Ramblers will bring a spirit to Sparta this Saturday that is Absolutely Alleghany.
