Barr’s Fiddle Shop welcomes you
We offer a huge selection in musical supplies. The store is celebrating its 40th year of operation. Tom Barr first started building handmade instruments from his house in Grayson County, Virginia. In 1983 the fiddle shop moved to West Galax. 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. Stevie 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.
