If we are able to reschedule to a later date, we will let you know. Thank you for your understanding, and we hope to see you again another time.

Burlington, North Carolina’s Dewey and Leslie Brown are a power couple with bluegrass talent who bring together the sounds of Ralph Stanley mixed with Hazel Dickens. Dewey played fiddle as a Clinch Mountain Boy for Dr. Stanley for 11 years, until Stanley died in 2016. Moreover, Dewey released the CD Traditional Fiddle featuring Ralph Stanley and The Clinch Mountain Boys. Leslie is an authentic coal miner’s daughter raised by her grandparents in the Appalachian Mountains of Vansant, Virginia.  Her upbringing in those mountains has played a significant role in her songwriting, dancing, and singing. Leslie is about the most authentic mountain girl you will ever meet. Together, their music is powerful and genuine to bluegrass tradition. Dewey and Leslie currently own The Liberty Showcase Theater in Liberty, North Carolina. They also run two festivals, Deweyfest and Gospelfest. They are releasing a new CD called Jealousy with their band, The Carolina Gentlemen, this year. Their music continues to be a favorite amongst bluegrass radio programmers and listeners.

For this online Music of the Carolinas concert, you’ll hear a set from Dewey and Leslie Brown & The Carolina Gentlemen, and stick around after for a discussion and Q&A with Dewey and Leslie!
