Nu-Blu with Terry Baucom’s Dukes of Drive

In the Crown at the Carolina – Saturday, January 18, 7:00PM

TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY, DECEMBER 6, AT NOON

Nu-Blu’s heart and soul is husband-and-wife duo Daniel and Carolyn Routh. Together they deliver upbeat, blazing-fingers pick work as well as gentle, heartwarming ballads, and they do it all with a natural togetherness that can’t be faked, forged over hundreds of shows on the road.

Blue Ridge Music Hall of Fame member Terry Baucom is known as The Duke of Drive for his ability to “drive” a song with his steady, hard-driving banjo style. His career has spanned time with Charlie Moore and the Dixie Partners, Ricky Skaggs, Jerry Douglas, and Wes Golding in the band Boone Creek, Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver, IIIrd Tyme Out, and more.

Tickets are $25; a limited number of front row VIP seats will be available for $35. A $1 Facility Fee will be added to the price of each ticket. NC sales tax is included in the ticket price.

THE SOUTHERN GOTHIC WITH THE GRAND OLE UPROAR

In the Crown at the Carolina – Sunday, February 9, 7:30PM

TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY, DECEMBER 6, AT NOON

Since 2007, The Southern Gothic have been bringing their unique brand of sunbaked, road-worn country, southern rock, and soul to countless stages and fans across the US. Locked and loaded for 2020, The Southern Gothic will hit the ground running with a highly anticipated new EP, Burning Moonlight, a revamped live show, and a winter tour.

The Grand Ole Uproar’s musical gumbo conjures up the Texas twang of Waylon Jennings and Doug Sahm, the electric carnival of Dylan, the improvisational impulses of the Grateful Dead, and the laid-back swampy sound of J.J. Cale, as well as many other (and older) songs and artists in the American tradition.

Tickets are $15. A $1 Facility Fee will be added to the price of each ticket. NC sales tax is included in the ticket price.

 FRONT COUNTRY

In the Crown at the Carolina – Friday, March 6, 8:30PM

TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY, DECEMBER 6, AT NOON

In today’s crowded musical landscape, it’s hard enough to develop a unique and recognizable sound that can set you apart. That done, you face an even greater challenge: What IS this music? Although Front Country has a foundation in traditional music, they are creating their own path and sound with grace, poise, confidence, and extreme skill. They call it “roots pop” and it’s easy to agree with them.

Tickets are $17 in advance, $21 at the door. A $1 Facility Fee will be added to the price of each ticket. NC sales tax is included in the ticket price.

ELLIS PAUL

In the Crown at the Carolina – Saturday, May 2, 7:30PM

TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY, DECEMBER 6, AT NOON

Ellis Paul is a gifted singer-songwriter: a folksinger, a singular storyteller, a musician whose words reach out from inside, and yet also express the feelings, thoughts, and sensibilities everyone can relate to. Over the expanse of nineteen albums, numerous critical kudos, inclusion in movie soundtracks, and stages he’s headlined both near and far over the last quarter of a century, Peter Farrelly summed up the sentiments of those who have come to know and appreciate Paul by referring to him as “a national treasure.”

Tickets are $20 in advance, $22 at the door. A $1 Facility Fee will be added to the price of each ticket. NC sales tax is included in the ticket price.

* ABOUT THE CROWN
The Crown at the Carolina, located on the third floor, started its life as the 1927 vaudeville theatre’s original sign shop, churning out iconic posters and ads for early touring shows and movies. After spending the decades that followed as a storage area, the space underwent its first phase of renovation to open to the public as The Crown in September 2013.

Now a high-tech, flexible performance space, The Crown is celebrated for its delicate acoustics, inviting ambiance, intimate setting, as well as its accessibility to the Triad’s performing arts community. Warm, exposed brick walls, high ceilings, and huge lead-paned windows (original to the building) bring the room its natural, historic, up-cycled “cool” factor.
