'Sprung Is Here' — for 47 years at Galax convention

-A A +A

Folk pioneer and bluegrass legend Roger Sprung holds court at his annual jam sessions at the Galax Old Fiddlers' Convention.

By April Wright, Reporter

For more than 47 years, 81-year-old bluegrass legend Roger Sprung has graced Galax and the Old Fiddlers’ Convention with his presence.
The banjo master travels from Newtown, Conn., making a stop at the Clifftop Festival in West Virginia before stopping in Galax each year.
Sitting at his own spot behind the convention stage, suspended letters above his tent announce “SPRUNG IS HERE.”
A cardboard sign written in black marker indicates a schedule of jam sessions at his campsite.
