Concert in the Courtyard: The Southern String Band

when: Aug. 16, 2012

The Joel Lane Museum House, “The Birthplace of Raleigh,” sponsored its first Concert in the Courtyard on Thursday, August 16 from 7 to 9 pm. Admission was $10 per person for adults and $5 for children under age 12. Colonel Lane was a founding father of North Carolina’s capital city and an officer in the Wake County militia during the American Revolutionary War.

The Southern String Band is a group of nine friends in Raleigh, North Carolina, who plays old time string band music for fun. They play mostly traditional tunes and songs from the upper south which were collected from older musicians, old recordings, and their many old time music friends across the state.

The Southern String Band sticks to the basics. This nine-piece band wields four fiddles that sing out ringing melodies while bass, guitars, banjos and mandolin round out the sound. The group plays old-time dance music with joyous abandon.—Independent Weekly
