Below is a preview of what concert-goers will enjoy:
The Gravy Boys
"Please Don't Take Me Back"
Hailing proudly from Raleigh/Durham, the Gravy Boys sometimes adorn old-time attire like bowl hats and classic-style vests while they stomp and dance around. By doing this, the Gravy Boys evoke a traditional style with a high-energy spirit to their music. The Gravy Boys website describes the group's music as "adding a cup of country, a pinch of roots rock, a handful of honky-tonk, a splash of bluegrass, a dash of hobo folk, stirring vigorously, and letting it simmer 'til the pot bubbles over."
The ensemble isn't afraid to put their spin on some non-bluegrass tunes as well. Check out them playing "Time of the Season" below:
Alice Gerrard & the Piedmont Melody Makers
Durham, NC-based Alice Gerrard has been called one of the "pioneering women of bluegrass" and has often been a guest on A Prairie Home Companion, heard Saturday evenings here on WUNC.
Alice joins longtime friends Chris Brasher, Cliff Hale and Jim Watson to offer calm and composed old-time bluegrass songs. At 80 years old, Gerrard's legacy continues to grow. She was recently nominated for a 2015 Grammy for her album "Follow the Music."
