The sounds of Banjos, Guitars…

and Fiddles spill out onto the beautiful streets of Downtown Galax, Virginia. Listen closely and follow the music to Barr’s Fiddle Shop, a Galax icon for over 27 years. The walls are lined with fiddles, guitars, banjos and mandolins. The Barrs have been making handmade instruments well over 27 years. A well-stocked supply of strings, books, CDs and t-shirts as well as electric and bass guitars, drums and amps make Barrs a complete music resource.

Jammin in front of Barrs Fiddle Shop

The store is owned and operated by Tom and Stevie Barr. The local favorite Junior Brown is their one and only employee, but make no mistake about it is one heck of a salesman not to mention one of the friendliest guys you’ll ever meet. Local musicians gather together at Barrs for jam sessions throughout the week. Anyone is welcome to come in and pick and grin. The Barrs take great pride in setting up all instruments sold from their shop and guarantee satisfication in your purchase or they will fix the instrument at no charge until you are satisfied.


Barr’s Fiddle Shop offers…

a huge selection in musical supplies. The store is celebrating its 27th year of operation. Barr’s Fiddle Shop has deep roots in the Galax community, dating back to 1979. Tom Barr first started building handmade instruments from his house in the Piper’s Gap community of Grayson County, Virginia. In 1983 the fiddle shop moved to West Galax and shared occupancy with the local Goodwill store. Just above the shop was the best country-style restaurant in town called the West Galax Diner. Directly beside the fiddle shop was the local favorite barber shop which was full of musicians. In fact, the two barbers were two of the finest musicians in the whole area. Their names were Charles Hawks and Beverly Davis. Stevie Barr found his inspiration for playing the banjo from these two guys. Stevie got his business inspiration when he helped his father run the store, using a cigar box as a cash register when they first started out. Tom Brantley, Bobby Hicks, and Wade Petty

“I love bluegrass and oldtime music and support all the youth in any way to make sure this music lives forever!” Stevie Barr

Come in and enjoy the pictures and sounds at Barrs Fiddle Shop. We look forward to seeing you there.
