Songs from the Road Band

Songs from the Road Band is a supergroup featuring a rotating cast of musicians who all perform with other ensembles and projects throughout the U.S. This may be your only chance to see them share the stage in this configuration - Charles R Humphrey III (Steep Canyon Rangers, bass), Sam Wharton (guitar), Phil Barker (Town Mountain, guitar), Mark Schimick (Josh Daniel/Mark Schimick Project, mandolin), Sam Guthridge (banjo), Tommy Maher (Fireside Collective, dobro), James Schlender (fiddle) (subject to change). They'll be joined for a few tunes by Raleigh's own Hank & Pattie!

Jerron "Blind Boy" Paxton

Blues artist Jerron “Blind Boy” Paxton has WOWED the crowds in Raleigh and beyond with his humor and storytelling. From the streets of the Wide Open Bluegrass StreetFest to the intimacy of Fletcher Theater, his performances are memorable and mesmerizing. This coming year, he’ll perform a full evening concert as part of the Down Home Series! Paxton is a singer and multi-instrumentalist who transforms traditional jazz, blues, folk, and country music into the here and now. He is still in his 20s, and he is often described as a young man with an old soul.
