Come out to see Jonah Riddle and Carolina Express Saturday, October 26, 2019, from 2:00pm to 3:00pm. The concert is free with museum admission and for members.
From Burnsville, NC, Carolina Express is fronted by 18-year-old Jonah Riddle, who plays banjo and sings lead. His 14-year-old brother, Grayson, plays guitar, and their father, Benjie, plays upright bass. Tom Isaacs is on fiddle.
The Riddle brothers are also members of Tomorrow’s Bluegrass Stars and have performed at the International Bluegrass Music Association with Kids on Bluegrass.
Bluegrass Today notes that the boys “dress the part, sing the style, and play the old ways,” and that “they are quick studies of the early pioneers of bluegrass.”
One of the best new banjo pickers on the national bluegrass scene, Jonah Riddle has been endorsed by Deering Banjos, GHS Strings, and Peterson tuners.
The band has recently played Dollywood, Bluegrass on the Plains, and the Bluegrass and Blue Water Cruise, and they have picked on stage with a host of bluegrass stars, including Doyle Lawson, Ralph Stanley, Ricky Skaggs, J.D. Crowe, and NuBlu.
