Concert

Join PineCone at the NC Museum of History for a special Mother’s Day concert! The Buck Stops Here formed in 2013, inspired by the vision of Gailanne Amundsen (of Jubal’s Kin), who wanted a project that could combine old-time music with a very contemporary edge, great musicianship and spot on vocals. Amundsen chose three women from different parts of the east coast, including two now in NC, and asked if they wanted to try an experiment. With Rebecca Jones (bluegrass banjo, cajon, harmony vocals), Julie Chiles (lead vocals, fiddle, guitar), Shona Carr (tenor guitar, vocals, clawhammer banjo, fiddle, songwriter), and Jeffrey Amundsen (bass), this band combines beautiful four-part harmony, funky bass and original songs and tunes that are sure to strike a chord with you. Their repertoire includes music from a wide array of American roots music styles, from old-time fiddle tunes with hard driving bluegrass banjo to introspective originals with percussion and four-part harmonies. Members hail from Florida, North Carolina, and Virginia. 

The Buck Stops Here is in the process of making their debut album with Erick Jaskowiak, a six-time Grammy nominated recording engineer who has worked with Alison Krauss, Bruce Molsky, John Doyle and Liz Carroll, The Waybacks, Crooked Still, and many more (including the Cold Mountain soundtrack).

Music of the Carolinas concerts are sponsored by Williams Mullen and the NC Museum of History Associates.
