Opening Day at Hill Country's Backyard Barbecue: The Floorboards
The Floorboards are an Appalachian Roots Rock Ensemble hailing from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.
The band marries rock & roll and country roots with the sights and sounds of southern mountain towns. Jake and George shake the leaves from the trees. Bob wails like a steam whistle cutting through the pines. Patrick coaxes stringed cries from the hills and hollers. Matt tells the story.
In their first year as a band, The Floorboards quickly have become a staple in Southwest VA and are branching out with purpose. Having co-billed with bands such as Trampled by Turtles and performed at venues and festivals in the southeast along side Drive by Truckers, Jackson Brown, Matisyahu, Allison Krause and Union Station, and many others, the band is picking up steam like the 207.
