2011 Henry Reed Memorial Fiddlers Convention

The Ninth Annual Henry Reed Memorial Fiddlers Convention was held in Glen Lyn, VA on June 10-11, 2011. This festival honors the life and music of local old-time fiddler Henry Reed.

Friday's activities began at 5 PM and featured the Reed Family Band, the Giles Mountain String Band, Katie and the Bubbatones, and Stanley Asbury and the Monroe-Floyd Connection. Individual and band competitions were held on Saturday. Alan Jabbour offered a 2-day fiddle workshop agian this year from 10-12 on Friday and Saturday morning.
