Music of the Carolinas

Since 1998, PineCone and the North Carolina Museum of History have partnered to present The Music of the Carolinas Series - a series of nine FREE concerts featuring some of the state's finest folk musicians and tradition bearers. These concerts take place in the Museum's Daniels Auditorium (300 seats) on the second Sunday of each month between October and June. This series utilizes program notes, lecture-demos, and film screenings in addition to performances to educate audiences about various cultural art traditions in NC. PineCone co-presents the series along with the North Carolina Museum of History.

Celebrate Mothers' Day with a special Music of the Carolinas concert featuring the Cane Creek Cloggers, a dance troupe that strives to promote an understanding of, and respect for, the diverse cultural heritage of the American South and to teach and share the enjoyment of clogging. They choreograph all their own routines, though their innovations are within the realm of old-time steps and figures. They share the goal of preserving the heritage of old-time clogging, flatfoot and buckdancing while exuding the joyful energy that is at the root of it all. The Cloggers will be accompanied by Thump Drive: Bobb Head (fiddle), Brett Riggs (banjo), Pan Riggs (guitar), and Jake Riggs (bass).

The Music of the Carolinas series wraps up the year with local favorites, The Gravy Boys, who perform acoustic Americana music that draws deep from the well of our country’s diverse musical heritage. Their high energy shows feature heartfelt vocal harmonies, boot-stomping rhythms, lively stage banter, and honest musicianship. Since they came together to form the band in 2004, they have released three albums of original music (Workin' the Angels for Handouts, 2007; Dust Bowl Lover, 2009; Crackerjack Whistle, 2012). The Gravy Boys are storytellers who spin their tales through tight, brother-duet vocals over a vintage acoustic backdrop. They take old-time themes and bring them into the present day with an authentic passion that resonates with all who listen.


PineCone and the NC Museum of History would like to thank the following sponsors for helping preserve this series. YOU can also help by making a donation to PineCone's Annual Fund today!
