Song of the Mountains

Formed in 2007, Carolina Blue lays claim to a Top 5 Billboard album, four International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) award nominations and being named Entertainer of the Year by the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America (SPBGMA) along with winning the coveted Bluegrass Band of the Year, Vocal Group of the Year and Album of the Year honors, also from SPBGMA. The band presents bluegrass music like Bill Monroe intended, without being a Bill Monroe cover band. The sound is marked by heavy fiddle and mandolin work; and complex harmony from a group that enjoys sincere engagement with fans. Bobby Powell (guitar and vocals) said he and the Carolina Blue band members, which includes Timmy Jones (mandolin and vocals), James McDowell (banjo and vocals), Reese Combs (upright bass and vocals) and Aynsley Porchak (fiddle, recipient of the 2018 IBMA Momentum Instrumentalist Award), “are on the same page when it comes to music and lifestyle. We’re not a partying band. We’re all conservative Christians and we reflect that as a band, too.” The band’s attire is a throwback to the 1940s and 50s. That periodic style of dress was influenced by two of Bobby and Tim’s North Carolina mentors – Roy Chapman and Joe Byers. “They taught us to try to dress better than the folks who are paying money to see us play,” Powell says. “They told us to respect our audience.” Carolina Blue records for Billy Blue Records with their new album, Take Me Back, available now.

Broken Angels

Talent Lineup Subject to Change

Broken Angels is an original, Americana, rockabilly band that will leave you singing, dancing and laughing.

 

David Tenery lead singer and rhythm guitarist (harmonica, mandolin and concertina) grew up surrounded by music as the son of an evangelical minister. Performing in gospel groups at an early age in Texas, Dave was later influenced by the traditional rural music of North Carolina when his family moved to the Blue Ridge Mountains. Adding a healthy dose of rock and roll Tenery, a prolific composer, has toured coast to coast playing famous venues such as the Lone Star Café, CBGB’s and The Bitter End in NY and The Troubadour in LA. Legendary producer Tom Dowd once called David his favorite songwriter.

 

Dale Meyer, premiere lead guitarist (electric, acoustic, dobro, pedal steel and

lap steel) and singer, joined Tenery in the late 90’s as producer and player on

his song demos. After two years of cataloging material they started forming

the band Broken Angels. Meyer is a well- known east coast musician and has

toured extensively with top stars on the bluegrass and country circuit, most

recently with popular artist Michael Reno Harell.

 

Steve Folger, bass guitar aficionado, rounded out the collaboration that

formed Broken Angels, with his in the pocket playing, tenor harmonizing and

extensive blues background. Folger spent many years touring the US with

top shelf rock and blues groups laying the rhythm for artists Scott Anslie,

Max Drake and Tadpole Walters to name a few. After a lengthy stint on the European blues circuit Steve found himself back in the states playing with long-time friends Dave and Dale.

Song of the Mountains 

March 6, 2021  7:00 pm . $30

Limited Seating

Call it retro, hillbilly, bluegrass or rockabilly, the group strives for something Kody simply calls "dern good entertainment." Deeply rooted in North American folk music, Kody Norris has crafted a performance that harkens back and tips a hat to the traditions created by Bill Monroe, Jimmy Martin's showmanship, the Stanley Brothers' harmonies, performances of the Grand Ole Opry and a bit of Vaudeville. Top notch picking is center stage, but humor and visual flash are part of the entertaining package. Always clad in colorful, tailored suits adorned with rhinestones, ties, classic hats and ornate boots, the band earns its moniker as a "show." The brand is traditional, clean cut, acoustic and always entertaining.

The foursome is fronted by Kody Norris on guitar and his fiddling "sweetie," Mary Rachel Nalley, Josiah Tyree on banjo and Cousin Charlie Lowman on the bass! 

The band's album, When I Get The Money Made, was named 2017 Bluegrass Album of the Year by the National Traditional Country Music Association. The Kody Norris Show was honored with 7 nominations in the 2018 SPBGMA Awards in Nashville. 

Playing 90+ dates a year, The Kody Norris Show covers the road from Canada to Mexico, only missing two states to date. They've been part of the University of Chicago Folk Festival and have performed at the Smithsonian and the Kennedy Center and are part of two weekly programs on the acclaimed RFD-TV's network, The Cumberland Highlanders Show and The Bluegrass Trail. 

The Kody Norris Show just signed their first major record deal with Rebel Records from Charlottesville, VA. Be on the lookout for their first album to be released mid-March!

Lightnin' Charlie is an icon in our region and a favorite of music fans everywhere. Voted “Favorite Musician” and “Favorite Artist” in the Mountain South multiple times, Lightnin' is a recording artist, songwriter, showman, and author, whose style really defies description. His unique blend of blues, country, rock 'n' roll, and gospel, all combine to create a cheerful earful of what he calls “Good Music For Good People”. 

From the hills of Western North Carolina, two brothers set out to show the world their brand of bluegrass music, as so many brother duets have done before them. Jonah, 21 and Grayson, age 16, grew up playing gospel bluegrass in their church services. From the very beginning the brothers clung to the roots of the music, something that many young pickers tend to overlook. The love for the music pushed Jonah to start his own band, Jonah Riddle and Carolina Express.

Jonah takes care of banjo duties in the group, playing a style that is quickly fading away in today's business. You can easily hear the Stanley, Scruggs, and Osborne influences in his sound, the sounds of the pioneers! Grayson is on guitar and does all of the group's lead singing. Grayson’s style of guitar playing will take you back to the days of the great Jimmy Martin; strong, steady rhythm, full of all the runs that help make bluegrass what it is! The Brother's dad, Benjie, holds down upright bass duties for the band. George Giddens joined

the band as their fiddle player in 2019. George is a seasoned fiddle player that has also played with one of the original Dillards from the Andy Griffith show. He is sure to please any crowd!

Jonah and Grayson have had the privilege of picking on stage with many great artists: Doyle Lawson, Darin & Brooke Aldridge, Balsam Range, Ralph Stanley II, Nu Blue, Ricky Skaggs, and J.D. Crowe. They have performed at many concerts and venues across the country, including: The Ryman Auditorium Courtyard, Dollywood, the North Carolina State Fair in Raleigh, Woodsongs, the Lyric Theatre in Kentucky, Houstonfest, the North Carolina State Bluegrass Festival, Bluegrass First Class in Asheville, North Carolina, the Earl Scruggs Center, Tennessee Fall Homecoming, the Carter Fold and WDVX Blue Plate Special in Knoxville, TN.  Jonah and Grayson are also members of Tomorrow’s Bluegrass Stars and have performed at IBMA Kids on Bluegrass in Raleigh, North Carolina. They have won several awards during the time they have been performing such as Best of Show and individual awards for playing their instruments as well.

Above all, they want to thank the Lord for all his opportunities that He gives them and for all His blessings!
