It was a Saturday afternoon of music, fun, and reflection at The Dodd Cabin on Route 664 headed toward Wintergreen. The 2nd Annual Piney Mountain Music Festival was held over the weekend at the restored Dodd Cabin in Beech Grove. It’s part of a new tradition started back in 2008. Our Paul Purpura was there to grab these great shots. Thanks Paul!

The cabin has been restored to resemble what it might have looked like over a hundred years ago.

The Mansfields in Beech Grove now own the cabin and recently restored it.

The Piney Mountain Boys, James River Cut-Ups and Skyline Country Cloggers were just a few of the bands on hand Saturday afternoon.
