BarinAshvilleWhat a great time we’ve had these past couple of days in North Carolina. You made us feel so welcome at our shows at Jack of the Woods in Asheville and Thomas Street Tavern in Charlotte! Along the way we got to sing about the blue ridge mountains, see the house where Jimmy Rodgers, the “Singing Brakeman,” lived, and drive through town where Earl Scruggs was born. Thank you, North Carolina, and we hope to be back soon!
