Breaking Up Christmas Dance featuring The New Smokey Valley Boys

The New Smokey Valley Boys are a group of young men who have come together to honor one of old time music’s greatest string bands. The original group based out of Surry County, NC, was led by the late Benton Flippen and Paul Sutphin from the 1970s all the way through to Flippen’s death in 2011. Though various members came and went, the group was known for its hard driving square dance style, and received numerous awards over the decades. Along the way Benton invited younger folks to be a part of his group, including members of the New Smokey Valley Boys. Though these guys have played together for years in various combinations, this group is dedicated to reviving a particular sound that once dominated the old time scene.
