The Carolina Relics - Appalachian Music Trio
No! Carolina Music Museum isn't talking about its “relics”, not the world-famous collection of historic and playable stringed instruments at the Carolina Music Museum, No! They are talking about The Carolina Relics, the fabulous Appalachian music trio that is performing at the museum on Friday, November 16, at 7:30 PM. This is the second group of musicians to be featured in the museum’s Heritage Green Music Festival, a festival that “faces south”, highlighting the music that is as much a part of our musical heritage as the historic instruments currently on display in the museum: it’s all here in four special concerns, four in the fall, four in the spring, Bluegrass, Appalachian music, Piedmont Blues and Jazz, sponsored by Craig and Bianca Walker.
Exploring the deep, rich and diverse heritage of Old-time Music from the Carolinas and the Southern Appalachian Mountains, The Carolina Relics, with Becky Stovall, David White and Andy Brooks, three musicians who can pick up and play nearly any stringed instrument will light up the intimate 80 seat performance space and beer and wine will be available!
Becky, from Dacusville, SC, loves Old-time music, always has, and enjoys sharing its traditions at dances, concerts, and around campfires, but what she loves the most is jamming at local festivals. David White, from Pickens, SC, has been playing stringed instruments for over 40 years. His love of dancing and driving old-time music led him into playing for contra and other traditional dances playing fiddle, claw hammer banjo and the ‘Jaw Harp’. Andy Brooks first memory of old-time music is plucking on the strings of a banjo at his great grandmother’s house on the Alice Mill Hill in Easley, South Carolina. To him, old time music provides people with a link to the past, their identity and autonomy by getting people together to enjoy a traditional art form.
