Carolina Blue is a Brevard, NC based band whose roots run deep in the tradition of Bill Monroe. The band was formed in 2007 after the release of the album Nothing So Blue by Bobby Powell and Tim Jones. Carolina Blue won the South Carolina state bluegrass championship at RenoFest in 2011. They also received their first Vocal Group of The Year Nomination at the 2018 SPBGMA Awards Show. They have appeared on the hit TV show “Song Of The Mountains” as well as “The Bluegrass Trail” series on RFDTV. The band's repertoire consists of original songs, many bluegrass favorites, and gospel, too, all done in the traditional style. Their most recent Pinecastle Records release, I Hear Bluegrass Calling Me, debuted on Billboard's Top 5 Bluegrass Albums chart, has just recently made its debut on the National Bluegrass Survey's Top 15 Albums chart, and has produced their #1 hit song, "Rusty Rails." Band members are Bobby Powell on guitar and vocals, Timmy Jones on mandolin and vocals, Reese Combs on upright bass and vocals, James McDowell on banjo and vocals, as well as American and Canadian Grand Master Fiddle Champion, Aynsley Porchak on fiddle, a recipient of the 2018 International Bluegrass Music Association’s Momentum Instrumentalist Award.
“Carolina Blue’s ability to deliver the old traditional bluegrass standards together with many of their own new and original songs had our audience clapping their hands and tapping their toes. By the end of their first set, the audience gave them a standing ovation and encore… and it was only 10am in the morning!” — Nancy Rogeski, Promoter - County Bluegrass Festival
“…bluegrass comfort food. Something warm and familiar that takes you back to an earlier time. It’s good even when it’s average. But when it’s just right, as it is with Carolina Blue, it can’t be beat.” — John Lawless, Bluegrass Today
