Passin Thru

Passin’ Thru Bluegrass Band has been together since 2006. What originally started as a group of friends getting together on Saturday night to jam has become a great groups of friends who can play some downright traditional bluegrass if that is what you what to hear, they are also know for remaking some old songs into bluegrass style music like Lodi (which can be heard on our music page), Jet Plane, and Ridin’ My Thumb to Mexico (also on our music page). All of the members of Passin’ Thru have several people that they credit for their talents but first and foremost they gave all credit and praise to Our Lord Jesus Christ. The band motto is when it stops being fun, they need to look at what has happened because if they aren’t having fun the audience is not having fun.

Austin Dunn was born and raised in Mt. Giland area of North Carolina and is married to Stacy. Austin has been playing banjo for about 6 years and he loves to put the drive back into bluegrass. Austin is the newest to Passin’ Thru and we feel that he has made a great addition to our unique style with his driving banjo.

Jim Damron was also born and raised in West Virginia, and grew up listening to his dad play at festivals and gatherings throughout his young life.

Sons of the South

Sons of the South is a local bluegrass band that has been entertaining bluegrass lovers for decades.  They continue to be crowd favorites wherever they play, delivering their own hard driving and heartfelt style of bluegrass music, performing traditional as well original material.   The band entertains regularly at Sims Country BBQ, Mt. Gilead Music Barn and Debbie’s Country Kitchen.  They proudly won 1st place at Yadkin County Fiddler’s Convention this year and claimed 4th place recently at the fiddler’s convention in Galax.   The band is extremely excited about returning to Raleigh on October 3, 2014, to perform at the Wide Open Bluegrass Street Festival.

Sons of the South currently consist of Michael Souther (banjo and vocals), Gary Isenhour (guitar and vocals), Connor Lambert (mandolin and Vocals), Keith Dunn (fiddle and vocals) and Franklin Rash (bass).

Michael Souther, a long standing member of Sons of the South, best describes the history behind this successful band:  “The Sons of the South was founded in the 1950’s with Avery Aiken on banjo and my father, Luther Souther, on guitar.  The band came back together in the 1980’s with Tommy Killian playing the fiddle and singing tenor and lead.  Luther Souther played  bass and sang baritone.   Gary Isenhour played guitar, sang lead and tenor.  My name is Michael Souther and I play banjo and sing lead, baritone and tenor.  I was blessed to play with these great men over the next thirty years.  The band has had many members who have come and gone, but all are family to me.”  Souther  lives in Statesville.

Gary Isenhour lives in Stony Point, NC. Gary’s soulful voice, coupled with his hard-driving flat-picking style on guitar, is a true asset to Sons of the South.  He has played with various bands throughout the area including Dewey Farmer and Powder Creek, Harold Killian and the Catawba River Boys as well as the popular Dry Run Bluegrass Band.  Gary played   a short time with LW Lambert and The Blue River Boys.  He played with the Sons of the South from 1989-1999 and proudly re-joined the band in January of this year.    He has won numerous accolades for his talents, including awards at Galax, VA and multiple other fiddlers’ conventions. Gary has opened for such greats as the Country Gentlemen, Bobby Hicks, Blue Highway, and the Jeanette Williams Band. When not working his normal job and performing with Sons of the South, Gary enjoys cruising the back roads on his motorcycle with his wife, Maria.

Connor Lambert lives in Troutman, NC.  Connor is a widely traveled musician, having played mandolin for nearly 40 years.  He comes from a musical family, having traveled and played music with his father, the late Garland Lambert.  Connor is also the pastor at Troutman Church of God.  Lambert has recorded with many different people over his career.  He sings lead and harmony vocals with Sons of the South.

Keith Dunn is originally from Atlanta, GA but has lived for many years now in Winston Salem, NC. During his youth, his parents were active in gospel music, performing as a gospel duet in churches around the region and playing piano and autoharp. He taught himself guitar and piano at a young age but became seriously interested in bluegrass and fiddle playing after visiting Everett’s Music Barn in Suwanee, GA. Since moving to NC, Keith has been fortunate to have the opportunity to learn from some of the best bluegrass musicians in the country and to help fine groups like Sons of the South carry on the bluegrass tradition.

Franklin Rash is originally from Union Grove, NC.  He comes from a musical family and background.  He has been involved with bluegrass music since childhood and has performed with friends, family as well as other musicians.  Rash has performed with organized musical groups including:  Grass Vibrations (family band), Murphy Brothers with L.W. Lambert and L.W. Lambert & The Blue River Boys.  He began performing with Sons of the South in December 2013.  Rash provides a solid foundation on bass for all of Sons of the South music.

NuHiWay

NuHiWay

NuHiWay presents a newly formed, all acoustic Bluegrass band consisting of familiar faces, with 150+ years of combined performing & recording experience. they were founded in 2007 by guitarist and vocalist, Joe Mahaffey. When he joined the popular group Sons of the South in 2010, Joe continued NuHiWay, primarily to perform Bluegrass Gospel events separate and apart from his regular gig with Sons of the South. When Sons of the South banjo player Michael Souther moved on to other projects in December 2013, NuHiWay became the full time endeavor of the remaining four members from Sons of the South; Mahaffey on guitar, Tom Isenhour on mandolin, Rick Lowe on fiddle and Jim Connell on bass. Collectively, these members bring more than 150 years of experience performing and recording Bluegrass music, from highly traditional to moderately contemporary.

Mahaffey and Connell were both founding members of Blue Denim in 1972, a band molded in the likeness of the most cutting edge Bluegrass group of that time, The Seldom Scene. They toured and recorded with Blue Denim throughout the decade. Following the breakup of that group in 1978, Mahaffey continued to work with Blue Denim founder, R. C. Harris, into the eighties, as well as with other groups over the next two decades. Connell went into semi-retirement from the Bluegrass scene, playing occasional gigs into the early nineties, then retiring to Myrtle Beach SC. He came out of retirement to join Sons of the South in 2011, and now moves on with Mahaffey and the guys to NuHiWay. Jim lives in Statesville NC, is single and retired, while Joe resides in Olin NC, just north of Statesville, with his wife Marilyn. They operate an independent insurance agency.

Tom Isenhour is possibly the most award winning mandolin player ever in the Carolinas, with sixteen world titles to his credit, as well as many others. He has worked and recorded with many groups over the years, and is best known for his Monroe-style playing, his vast collection of acoustic instruments, and his knowledge of Bluegrass history. Tom hails from Salisbury NC, where he maintains a 1,000 square foot museum of vintage instruments and artifacts from the fifties, sixties and more, right in his home. Apart from maintaining the museum and pickin’ Bluegrass, Tom is retired and lives with his wife Cathy, and daughter Laura.

Rick Lowe has lent his fiddle, mandolin and vocal work to many groups and projects over the last forty years, most notably the popular Atlanta based band, Gritz, the Stoney Creek String Band, Boot Hill, String Fever and more recently, Rockford Express. As far back as the 1970’s, Rick also played with back up bands for Bluegrass greats, including Mac Wiseman, Josh Graves, Chubby Wise, Carl Story and Snuffy Jenkins. He has several championships to his credit, and in 2007 he played fiddle with the Deer Creek Boys at the Old Fiddlers Convention in Galax VA, where the band succeeded in winning the First Place Bluegrass Band honors. After a successful professional career as a corporate executive in the insurance and financial services industry, Rick is now retired and devotes his time to NuHiWay, and to traveling as much as possible with his wife, Marty. They make their home in Winston-Salem NC. On another note, these days Rick may be best known as the Father of banjoist Andy Lowe, a former Galax World Champion banjo player himself, and a frequent guest player with NuHiWay.

The group is highly versatile in its performances, with vocals from all its members. Lowe is featured on both fiddle and mandolin, while Isenhour can be seen on mandolin, guitar and banjo. Mahaffey and Connell keep the timing rock solid on guitar and bass. The band’s repertoire includes traditional Bluegrass material from the 1950’s, more contemporary flare from the ’60’s and ’70’s, as well as tunes taken from other genres and rearranged to become solid Bluegrass favorites. And, you can always count on hearing some Bluegrass Gospel selections during every performance.

The Outliers

Outliers 2014

The Facebook page for The Outliers describes their music as unexpected acoustic music. From Bluegrass Today : The Outliers, as the name of this North Carolina band might suggest, aren’t afraid to stray beyond the bounds of bluegrass for their self-titled debut CD. The band consists of Hank Bowman on Guitar and vocals, Stan Brown on Banjo and vocals, Spencer Mobley on Mandolin and vocals, and Julie Brown on Bass.

Hank Bowman is a singer/songwriter from North Carolina. With The Outliers, Hank brings diverse musical influences together in his writing and performing. “The Outliers came together at a perfect time for us to experiment and explore with acoustic music free from any outside expectations.” With the Outliers, Hank has been able to explore and stretch out musically. “Pete Rowan has had the biggest impact on me musically…he’s not afraid to play what’s really speaking to him at the moment, be it traditional bluegrass or something else. The Outliers gives me and my band mates a chance to explore and create traditional music with subtle flavorings from reggae, world music and Americana to create something new and unexpected.” In 2011, Hank released a solo project called “Lonely”. It was produced by Russell Johnson and features some of NC’s best bluegrass musicians. You can order “Lonely” in the band’s website Store!

Stan Brown is undoubtedly one of the best to ever pick the five string banjo. After years in Nashville playing with the likes of Grand Ole Opry stars Wilma Lee Cooper and Bill Monroe, Stan returned to his home state of North Carolina to become a first call banjo picker. He is widely regarded for his unique backup licks that give life to any song. Stan sings great harmony and has a powerful ear for arrangements.

Julie Brown on bass has a sense of tone and timing that is highly sought after. After a solid run with the national stage, Julie joins The Outliers to hold down the rock solid upright bass duties with style and grace, knowing that what you don’t play is as important as what you do play. She is truly an enlightened bass player.

Spencer Mobley is a native of Raleigh, NC. He has been playing bluegrass for over a decade and is equally at home on the guitar or mandolin. With the Outliers, Spencer incorporates his mandolin playing and singing into the unique material and definitive sound one can expect from the Outliers performances. Spencer’s musical tastes and influences cover a wide range of artists and genres and he is a bit of a historian of the music we all love.

Southeast Express

Southeast Express“Southeast Express” was originally formed in the late 70’s by Mr. LeRoy Gregory of Julian, N.C. Unfortunately Mr. Gregory was injured in a rodeo accident in 1994 and later passed away from those injuries. Today they are proud to carry on the band that he started in honor of LeRoy and the music that he loved!The group is currently made up of the following members: Jim Boren of Pleasant Garden on Dobro, guitar and vocals; Ray Coble of Julian on bass and vocals; Jeff Wiseman of Reidsville on banjo; Dale Giddens of Julian on guitar and vocals; and Joe Norris of Julian on mandolin and vocals.Southeast Express performs traditional, Gospel and contemporary Bluegrass with a little comedy thrown in and an occasional country or rock and roll song for variety. They have recorded 4 projects; “Southeast Express”, “On Track” and an all Gospel project, “Back To The Cross”, “It’s The Gospel:, and “The Bluegrass Show”. Southeast Express would like to carry on the “Bluegrass Tradition” for a long time to come!Some of Jim Boren‘s earliest memories are filled with his father, Jim Sr. playing his guitar and singing the songs of the time such as Hank Williams’, Don Gibson’s and , of course the king, Elvis’. His mother, Martha, would join in the on the “doghouse” bass occasionally to make it a family affair. Then the Fab Four came across the pond and appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show. Jim, like so many of his generation, was captivated by the look and sound of The Beatles. So much so that Jim and his younger brother, Gray, made cardboard guitars, donned Beatle wigs and performed family shows lip-syncing the latest Beatle’s album. The interest and excitement Jim had for “his music” did not go unnoticed as Jim soon received an electric guitar for Christmas. His Dad then showed him some chords and Jim was on his way to the “rock-and-roll” years. He played in several rock bands up until his mid-twenties. About this time, Jim discovered the “high-lonesome” sound of Bluegrass music and he was immediately drawn to sound of the Dobro. He listened to the greats of resophonic guitar, “Uncle” Josh, “Cousin” Oswald, and Jerry Douglas. He studied the basics from them and then set upon developing his own style. Jim can seamlessly blend rock, country, blues, jazz, and bluegrass styles to create an exciting sound while always staying true to the “roots”. Jim joined Southeast Express around 1995. He has been worship leader at his church for over 25 years. He is a member of the Praise Team and a wonderful testament to what God can do in one’s life. He has a beautiful wife and a lovely daughter who is also very talented in her own right. A regular “chip-off-the-old-block”! Jim is a real talent and a great asset to Southeast and we’re glad to have him.Ray Coble hails from Julian NC. His family has a rich history there. Ray started playing music when he was 2 years old. His uncle Fudd instilled a great love of the music and the stories it told. He started playing banjo but wanted a bigger part in the band so it was decided that he should play bass.Dale Giddens was born in Greensboro, NC and grew up in Julian, NC. His father played piano, guitar and sang the wonderful, old gospel tunes in the family church. Dale joined the Coble’s Church choir when he was around ten years old. It was there the journey of learning the different vocal parts started that he would bring to the Southeast Express Band in later years. Dale was drawn to the “bluegrass” sound at an early age. While spending weekends visiting with his Grandmother, he would listen to the “Top of the Morning” radio show featuring Reno and Smiley. He heard Tony Rice and Dale was hooked! He got a guitar and practiced. Dale met another love of his life soon after this. Her name was Gail Layton and she would soon become Mrs. Dale Giddens. Together they have a lovely daughter, Robin, who loves music and to sing with her dad. Dale got a ’59 Gibson J50 guitar, his first “real” guitar. He practiced and played at local jams and became known in the musical community, Around 1993, when a tragic accident created a fill-in opening for Southeast Express, Dale was asked to fill the slot and he’s been a big part in creating the “Southeast sound” ever since. Now Dale is “Paw” to two lovely grand daughters, Olivia Rose and Abigal Grace.

Joe Norris was born and raised in the Watauga county, NC. When he was just a lad, his dad paid $11.50 for his first mandolin. (A lot of money in those days!) Joe practiced that mandolin while his brother, G.C., practiced his guitar. During their teen years they formed a band naturally called “The Norris Brothers”. They honed their skills while performing live, 3 days a week, on the Boone, NC radio station WATA. The Blue Sky Boys were very popular at this time and Joe and his brother emulated that sound. Joe later teamed up with two friends to form “The Carolina Buddies”. Their band also performed a weekly program for WATA. It was during this time that a young man named Arthur “Doc” Watson appeared with them on several of their programs. After graduating from Appalachian High School in 1954, Joe moved to Pulaski VA. He found work there, like most folks, in the textile mills. Joe became interested in southern gospel singing during this time and started singing first tenor with a couple of local church groups. Joe moved to Greensboro, NC in 1960 to join the Greensboro Police Department, where he would spend 30 years and attain the rank of captain. At this time, Joe joined “Jack Brown and the Spiritualaires” and were featured on a weekly television show for WSJS in Winston-Salem, NC. After, a few years, Joe moved on to join up with “The Samaritans Quartet”. A band he spent about five years with. In 1970, Joe joined with the “Christian Heralds” and sang tenor with them for the next 25+ years. Along about 1984, Joe was contacted by Leroy Gregory, founding member of Southeast Express. Joe agreed to play on a “temporary” basis and has been contributing to the “signature” sound of the Express ever since. Joe and his wife, Anne, and son, Scott, currently reside in Greensboro, NC. He has a daughter, Pamela Norris Moretz, and a grand daughter, Anne Moretz Hamby.

Jeff Wiseman was born in a little coal town called Oak Hill, West Virginia. His love for music was instilled at an early age by his mother and father. His mother would take her family to every church revival in a 50 mile radius. There, and in his home church, he would come to love the Lord and hear the old hymns and learn the rich harmonies that he would take with him through his life. His father loved old time and bluegrass music. As a boy, Jeff’s dad would take him to the festivals and fiddlers conventions where he would immerse himself in the sights and sounds. Jeff met his wife, Amy, while serving in the USAF. They reside in Reidsville, NC where they enjoyed three wonderful children, Nic, A.J. and Tyler. He started playing with Southeast Express in May 2007.

Hagan-Stone Park
5920 Hagan-Stone Park Road
Pleasant Garden NC 27313

High Lonesome Strings Bluegrass Association & Hagan-Stone Park present the 17th Annual Pickin’ in the Park Bluegrass Music Festival at the Clyde Davis Memorial Stage in Hagan-Stone Park. The public is invited to bring a chair or picnic blanket and come share with us a day of free music. Bring an instrument and come early to attend free bluegrass instrument workshops hosted by regional and professional musicians! Please visit the Picking in the Park page for more details. This year’s headliner are Al Batten & The Bluegrass Reunion:

AlBattenandBluegrassReunion

As bandleader and co-founder of the Bluegrass Reunion, Al Batten has proven true the concept that time, practice, and dedication are what it takes to master the 5-string banjo. The “3-T’s” are his staples: Taste, Timing, and Tone. Following his initiation to the instrument in his teens, Earl Scruggs, Don Reno, Bill Emerson, Walter Hensley, and Billy Edwards heavily influenced him. And by combining these influences, Al developed a unique style of his own. In addition, his lead singing is second to none. For just as soon as he sings the first note, you can immediately tell it comes straight from the heart! By carrying on his family tradition in agriculture (farmer, leader in the local FFA, former Boy Scout leader, and retired agriculture teacher), Al has learned to keep things down to earth, not only in his music, but in life as a whole. His quick wit and down-home demeanor only add to his outgoing personality and his good-hearted nature. These traits have become the standard for the Bluegrass Reunion, not only in the music business, but in his home, church, and community, as well. Al has two children, Brian and Lori; four grandchildren, Lily, Cate, Sarah, and Nickolas; and makes his home in Selma, NC.

Handling the guitar chores for the Bluegrass Reunion is band co-founder David Turnage. By coincidence, he and Al both bought their first banjos the same week, from the same music store. Shortly after that, David realized that the banjo was not necessarily his instrument of choice and switched to the guitar. He and Al founded the Bluegrass Reunion in 1973 and have stuck together ever since. His rhythm playing and tasteful choice of “runs” on the guitar highlight the timing for the unit and is the foundation for keeping the band “gelled” together. In addition, his solid baritone singing rounds out the trios, while his lead singing lends a smoother, more heartfelt feeling to the numbers he is featured on. David is a retired engineer from BellSouth and retired from the NC National Guard at the Rank of Command Sgt. Major. His extremely outgoing personality and knowledge of current events allow him to interject a highly informed viewpoint to any conversation, as well as to be able to interact with people from all walks of life. Still living within a stone’s throw of the home where he was raised in, David still dabbles in farming and like other members of the band, he exhibits a strong dedication to family and community. He and his wife Jeanette have two children, Allen and Nona; grandchildren Addilee, Kathryn, McKenna, Luke and Coy; and live in Wilson’s Mills, NC.

Newest member of the Bluegrass Reunion, Mike Aldridge, comes to the band with a great wealth of experience. Having played in bands such as Joe Snipes and the Country Boys, The Camp Springs Newgrass, AL Wood and the Smoky Ridge Boys, The Bass Mountain Boys, and The Bluegrass Experience, Mike is considered one of the best traditional mandolin stylists in the nation today!! His sense of timing and love for the traditional sound of bluegrass music have proven to fit right in with the Bluegrass Reunion and the direction in which they want their music to go. Mike is an automotive technician and along with his wife Linda and sons Brian, Daniel, and Nathan make their home in Saxapahaw, NC.

A veteran bluegrass performer, fiddler Johnny Ridge brings in the completing element to round out the unit. His fiddling style is heavily influenced by some of the pioneers of bluegrass music’s beginnings, as well as many second generation fiddlers: Chubby Wise, Tater Tate, Benny Martin, Jim Shumate, and Bobby Hicks, just to name a few. However, his greatest influence came from his father, who started him out playing at the age of 10. He has worked in many different groups down through the years, most notably his 16-year stint with the now-defunct Bass Mountain Boys. Before joining the Bluegrass Reunion, he and his father reunited as members of Pete Corum & Rising Sun. He has worked on many recording sessions and even tried his hand at acting in a couple of dinner theater productions. Johnny contributes his bass singing to the quartets and occasionally can be persuaded to add a baritone or lead voice to the trios. A true team player with a strong affection for “the old sound”, his desire to bring the tradition back to the bluegrass meshes perfectly with the rest of the group’s ideas towards where they want to take their music. Also highly devoted to family and church, Johnny and his wife Cindy have two children, Laura and Will and granddaughter Kendall and grandson Caden. He is a thirty-one year veteran with the NC Department of Transportation and he and his family reside in Mebane, NC.

A quiet man by nature, Phil Patterson lets his upright bass fiddle do the talking for him by holding down the bottom end and keeping the unit in time. His musical roots go back to the country rock sound where he played electric bass in several local bands. But when the bluegrass bug hit him, he went all out to learn the acoustic bass studying not only the techniques and musical importance of the instrument, but the history behind it, as well. His dedication to the music and the instrument has allowed him to become one of the most tasteful and solid bass players around. Also rooted in agriculture, Phil, along with his father and son, still operates the family farm. With the federal regulations now being imposed on NC’s cash crop, tobacco, Phil and his partners have ventured into another alternative style of farming greenhouse vegetables. Over the past couple of years, they have gained the reputation of raising “the best greenhouse tomatoes in NC!” His standards of hard work and dedication to family life also carries over to his music. By being committed to the “band sound”, he realizes that his role is the same as everyone else’s – not to stand out, but to blend in and support along with the others- a trait not commonly found in today’s music or society. Phil and his wife Linda have two children, Ryan and Emily; grandchildren Reece, Rylan, and Savanna; and live in Seminole, NC.
