Description:
The Floyd Country Store presents the May 2019 Floyd Radio Show and Season Finale on Saturday, May 4, 2019 starting at 7:30 pm.

Guests for our May season finale episode include Curtis Eller, Frank and Allie Lee and Joe Thrift & The Yeehaw Ramblers.

Curtis Eller is a banjo player, songwriter and rock & roll singer. A twenty-year show business veteran, Eller and his band The American Circus have developed a devoted international following based on dynamic, highly physical stage performances and an extensive catalog of curious phonographic recordings. The iconoclastic musician has spent more than a decade relentlessly touring the club, theatre and festival stages of a dozen countries in North America and Europe.

Eller is a gifted and prolific songwriter who's banjo-driven songs describe a dreamlike vision of American history where all points in time have collapsed into one. Past recordings have seen a ghastly parade of historical luminaries, from Abraham Lincoln and Buster Keaton to Amelia Earhart and Joe Louis, sharing the spotlight with a host of Civil War generals and corrupt 19th century politicians. The American Circus is diligently at work on a new full-length album on which they have augmented their indelicate, rock & roll rhythms with a tempestuous cloud of horns and an graceless choir of backsliders in their quest to bring Eller's historically evocative compositions to vivid, cinematic life.

Frank and Allie Lee are a husband and wife and a vocal-driven old time duo who met through playing the banjo. We have performed rural Southern music together since 2016. We love singing in harmony and sharing our music with attentive audiences of all sizes.

Frank and Allie, core duo of longstanding string band The Freight Hoppers, have traveled extensively as touring musicians. Frank, a founding member of The Freight Hoppers, has impressed audiences all over the United States, Canada, and northern Europe with his signature clawhammer sound. Allie is a founding member of The Whipstitch Sallies, a band from Indiana that toured in the Midwest, North Carolina, Colorado, and Hawaii. Together, the pair is a powerhouse duo with appearances planned across the country and in France.

Living in Bryson City, NC with our daughter and six kitties, we are known for singing, banjo playing, and screen-printed t-shirts.

The Yeehaw Ramblers play the high-energy music of southern Appalachia that dancers love. If the Yeehaw Ramblers manage to ramble to a venue near you, put on your dancing shoes and get ready for a good time!

The band formed after Joe Thrift (of the Red Hots) and Gina Dilg discovered how much they loved playing fiddles together, seeking out more opportunities despite being spread across North Carolina and Virginia. The energy of the tunes naturally attracted the mighty rhythm playing of David Sawyer on guitar and Tammy Sawyer on bass. The sound is brought together by the banjo playing of Jason Dilg.
