The Crooked Road links many old-time musical venues in southwest Virginia. It starts at the Ralph Stanley Museum and wanders past the Carter Family Fold, the Birthplace of Country Music Alliance Museum and ends in Franklin County (home of your webgal) at the Blue Ridge Folklife Museum.  Check out all the venues at their website.

Here's your webgal with Jim, Joe, and Mike at the after-show party back at the Econolodge.  We were using the website to answer the burning question "Were the Red Clay Ramblers wearing the same clothes in their first pic with Janette Carter as they wore on the back of Twisted Laurel?"  (No).
