Location: R.A. Fountain

Our promo for this concert:

[Fountain, NC] The Boys from Carolina return to Fountain General Store this Saturday night for a concert of driving bluegrass music that features the tight vocal hamronies of all five members.

These bluegrass veterans boast over 140 years of bluegrass performing experience in their current band, which grew out of their associations in Friends in Bluegrass. They assemble from various points across northeastern North Carolina to perform, and were a big hit in Fountain their first time through. 

Wright Young of Durham has been playing mandolin for over 25 years. He formerly played with the Eno Ramblers and Friends in Bluegrass.

Chuck Shutte of Raleigh plays Dobro, and his 30 year career includes stints with Friends in Bluegrass and Piedmont Bluegrass.

Lindy Brown, also of Raleigh, has played bass in a 30 year career with Sweet Dixie and Varina Station.

Larry Nunnery of Benson plays guitar and has worked with the Tony McLamb Band, Hanna Creek String Band, and Lonesome Pine Bluegrass.

Bob Wilkerson of Smithfield has been playing banjo for over 35 years. Before settling in North Carolina, he was active in the Maryland/Northern Virginia bluegrass scene, where he performed with Leon Morris, Bill Harold, Cliff Waldon, and Jack Fincham and Dixie Grass.
