[Fountain, NC] Carolina Grass plays traditional bluegrass and bluegrass gospel at Fountain General Store this coming Saturday night.

The band was a big hit in its public debut at Fountain General’s bluegrass festival held last August in conjunction with the Peanut Festival, and also on their November return engagement.

“There’s a lot of talent in this band,” said Alex Albright, Fountain General Store proprietor, “and they’re a lot of fun.”

Pickers include Eddie McDaris of Micro on upright bass; Larry Taylor of Crisp on guitar; Tommy Daughtridge of Rocky Mount on guitar; Lee Flood of Rocky Mount on banjo; James Brown of Tarboro on mandolin; and Steve Peters of Goldsboro on fiddle.

McDaris, Taylor and Daughtridge share vocals. 

Daughtridge, a retired fireman, is a flat-picker in the style of Lester Flatt. Peters is director of psychology at Cherry Hospital. Flood has played banjo with several bands at RAF, including the Smith Brothers and Father & Son Bluegrass.

In addition to traditional bluegrass, the band also performs some contemporary classics bluegrass style and also covers such artists at Leo Kottke.
