Rip the Calico

Rip the Calico is a high-energy contra dance band from North Carolina. Drawing heavily from Celtic influences (and origins), the Calicos will take you on a dance journey from dulcet circlings to mad romps across the dance floor. The band features Alison Arnold (Irish flute, Irish and Scottish whistles); Gordon Arnold (cello, guitar, banjo); Mairead Brady (fiddle); and Tyler Johnson (tenor banjo, guitar, mandolin). Celebrate Scottish and Irish culture and their contributions to North Carolina music at the NC Museum of History with Rip the Calico!

Rissi Palmer

Since releasing her self-titled CD in October 2007, singer-songwriter Rissi Palmer has received widespread media attention, including The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, People Magazine, GIANT, New York Post, VIBE, CBS Saturday Early Show, Huffington Post, Extra, CNN, and many more. And with the release of her debut single, "Country Girl," Palmer made music history as the first African-American female to chart a country song since 1987.

Rissi Palmer holds her guitar behind her head, partly visible over her right shoulder. Her dark, curly hair blows partly in front of her face; she is wearing a leather-textured jacket over a lacy white top.

Eliza Meyer

Eliza Meyer is an "old soul," singing and playing traditional string band, old time and early bluegrass music reminiscent of Hazel and Alice, The Carter Family, and Tommy Jarrell. Influenced by traditional ballads of Madison County and the round peak music of Surry County, she plays fiddle, banjo, guitar, and autoharp. Meyer currently studies with Dewey Brown and has taken classes with Alice Gerrard, Eddie Bond, Erynn Marshall and Sheila Kay Adams.

Eliza Meyer, a young woman with shoulder-length brown hair, plays a banjo seated in front of a microphone. Her head is tilted up and her eyes are closed; a Wide Open Bluegrass banner is partially visible in the background.
