Some of the first musicians to record country music came from this area. This rich history has kept the traditional arts alive and flourishing in Galax, Virginia. The Galax Old Fiddler’s Convention has been held annually the week ending on the second Saturday of August since 1935. This music competition has earned Galax the distinction of being know as the “World Capital of Old Time Mountain Music”.
