to the fiddle, he plays banjo in the old clawhammer style and has
been known to pick out a tune or two on the guitar.
Lloyd was a founding member of the Bucksnort Barndance Band,
which was based in Gainesville, Florida, for many years. Lloyd has
won fiddle contests at the Pioneer Florida Old Time Music
Championships and the State of Florida contest at the Florida

the Guest of Honor at the Pioneer Florida Championships and has
judged many contests. He has served as president and vice president
of the Florida Fiddlers Association.
