Parents of students attending Springhouse Community School have developed a creative way to raise funds, support, and awareness for the local school. Launching the Winter Theater Series, events held on the third Friday of each Winter month in the Community Room at the Floyd Center for the Arts, has been motivated by their love of music and community. We believe that organizing consistent, monthly events during the winter months gives locals and others from surrounding communities the chance to connect with each other while enjoying great live performances and supporting a small school with a big heart and ideas.
Virginia Hollow jumped at the opportunity to offer a benefit concert for the school. Virginia Hollow is a band and a sound born from the hills, valleys and mountains of Appalachia. Their performances and music take you on a journey fraught with raw emotions and stories of love, trust, betrayal, and longing. When all is said and done, the haunting melodies of Carrie Hinkley's soulful voice are hard to shake off and instead keep returning and playing in one's mind, like an untamed mantra of beauty and tragedy. Alan Graf, multi-instrumentalist in the band, shared, “Virginia Hollow looks forward to playing music to advance alternative and inspirational education in the Floyd area.”
