If you look at the 2010 Galax Fiddler's Convention T-shirt, you'll see a picture of twelve year old fiddler Jimmy Edmonds on one side and his grandfather on the other. The Edmonds family has been deeply embedded in the traditional music culture of Grayson County along The Crooked Road for generations. That's why there was little surprise when Jimmy returned home to open Leaf and String: Edmonds Custom Made Instruments, a luthier's shop and outdoor store in his home town and begin producing a range of guitars, fiddles, mandolins, and dulcimers that have become highly valued and eagerly sought out in the world of hand made acoustic instruments. Edmonds' Guitar Shop can be found at the back of Leaf & String.
