Highway 58

Location: R.A. Fountain

From our promo for this concert:

Highway 58, named for the NC highway on which three of its members reside, is fronted by Kinston’s multi-talented Clyde Mattocks, who formed the band nearly a decade ago to play what he calls “straight ahead bluegrass.”

Mattocks is a founding member of the SuperGrit Cowboy Band and is also a popular sideman and recording studio artist for many of the region’s best bluegrass and country musicians. Under his own name, he has released two CDs, Hugging the Hound and Over My Shoulder: The Steel Guitar Album, both featuring outstanding session work by many of the same artists.

“This is great bluegrass,” said Alex Albright,” Fountain General proprietor, “and a highly entertaining show.”

Joining Mattocks in the band are John Booker on upright bass; Danny Morris of Vanceboro on guitar; Don Batten of New Bern on mandolin; and Snow Hill’s Tim Myatt on banjo. “Mr. Myatt was out here last weekend, and he said he was feeling good and looking forward to playing for this show,” said Albright.
