The Carolina PineCones
were well received at both Live & Local Bluegrass and PNC presents Wide Open Bluegrass earlier this fall, and they are continuing to develop and progress as a band. You have two chances to see them perform in November:
Most of the band will be at the gig at Radius: Jessie Lang, Natalie Mundorf, Carter Ramquist, Sam Stage, Eliza Meyer, and new band member Aidan Buehler (mandolin) will share the stagein Hillsborough. Buehler joined the CPCs after this summer’s PineCone Jam Camp in July, and this will be his second performance with the band. The concert in Pittsboro will feature a smaller subset of the band, and band coach Jef Walter will fill in on bass.
Under Walter's mentorship, the members of this youth band rehearse together at least once a month, and they often jam together as well. The group is made up of students ages 13-18. All participants are expected to sing lead, sing harmony, lead instrumental material, practice the band’s list of around 30 songs, and attend band rehearsals (currently every week, usually in Raleigh).
You can learn more about PineCone’s youth programs and the Carolina PineCones, or if you have questions, please call us at 919-664-8333, or e-mail communications -at- pinecone.org. We’re thrilled to see these students continuing to pursue music, and excited to see where it will lead them!
