Hailing from opposite ends of the Appalachian mountains, Zoe & Cloyd is renowned fiddler and vocalist Natalya Zoe Weinstein and award-winning songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and vocalist John Cloyd Miller. Their show is as diverse as their upbringing: coming from a lineage of Jewish klezmer and jazz musicians, Natalya trained classically in her home state of Massachusetts before moving south in 2004. John, a twelfth generation North Carolinian and grandson of pioneering bluegrass fiddler, Jim Shumate, is a 1st place winner of the prestigious Chris Austin Songwriting Contest as well as an Artist Fellowship recipient for songwriting from the North Carolina Arts Council. Their Chanukah show at the NC Museum of History will feature a number of Jewish folk music songs from Natalya’s family’s repertoire.
This season, Music of the Carolinas features artists from the next generation of traditional music in North Carolina, in partnership with the Millennial Traditional Artists Project of the North Carolina Arts Council’s Folklife Program. Since 2016, the MTA Project has identified and served younger generation artists keeping and creating our state’s cultural traditions.

There are close to 600,000 people in central and eastern NC who are food insecure, meaning they are unable to consistently access nutritious and adequate amounts of food necessary for an active and healthy life. Almost one out of four of these are children. You can help by bringing at least two cans of food to this concert.
Child-friendly items such as pop-top cans, cereal bars, fruit cups, and peanut butter, along with canned fruits and vegetables, canned beans and soup, whole grain pasta and rice are appreciated. Non-food essentials such as hygiene items, household items, and paper products are particularly needed.
