John Oates was destined to be a musician. Singing from the time he could talk and playing the guitar since the age of five, his calling in life was never in question. Born in New York City, his family moved to a small town outside of Philadelphia Pennsylvania in the early 1950’s…. a move that would change the course of his life. Like most kids at that time, the impact of the early days of rock left an lasting impression on John.
When John first met Daryl Hall it was their mutual love for urban rhythm and blues blended with the more rural roots of Americana music that created their unique sound. Hall & Oates have recorded 21 albums which have sold over 80 million units making them the most successful duo in rock history. They have scored 10 number one records, over 20 top 40 hits and have toured the world for decades. Their influence on modern pop music has been cited by numerous contemporary bands, all of whom have credited and acknowledged H&O’s considerable contribution to American popular music.
Phil Keaggy is perhaps one of the most admired guitarists in music today. His fans range from those who aspire just to be able to play Keaggy’s mistakes, to professional musicians who have been strongly influenced by his style. And in between are those who don’t play guitar, yet find solace in his beautifully penned lyrics and memorable melodies.
Phil’s solo career has spanned more than 40 years, and has included over 60 solo albums, both vocal and instrumental, 8 releases with his band, Glass Harp, as well as numerous duets and trio albums. One of the most sought after studio guitarists, Phil also continues to sell out concerts all over the United States, with his ever-changing style, ranging from rock-and-roll to fully orchestrated instrumental compositions.
The Rowan Big Band All Stars is an 18-piece community big band in the style of Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Duke Ellington and other early twentieth-century greats, home-based in Landis, North Carolina. First organized in 2000, the Band is a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving this musical art form and sharing it with others. The members of our band volunteer their talents for performances, and the net proceeds from our musical performances are used to support worthwhile local charities.
From the beginning, founder Ron Turbyfill’s vision for the band has been to support charitable causes in Piedmont North Carolina by providing quality entertainment for charity events and fundraisers. Over the years the Rowan Big Band has performed at benefits for charities such as Communities in Schools, Speedway Childrens’ Charities, the USO, American Cancer Society, The American Legion Auxiliary, W.G. Hefner Veterans’ Medical Center, and others.
The Rowan Big Band All Stars maintain a long tradition of big-band standards and swing era favorites from the 1930’s through the present day, with enough selections on our playlist to perform up to 3 hours of music including ballads, swing tunes, pop hits, vocals, solo instrument features and ensembles.
"The guys in Chatham County Line began their musical lives as roots rockers before they headed down the path of traditional bluegrass. Dave Wilson (guitar, harmonica and vox) could be found playing in a rootsy rock band called Stillhouse when he first met up with John Teer (fiddle, mandolin and vox) and Chandler Holt (banjo), both of whom were immediately impressed with Wilson's originality and enthusiasm. They were complimentary, saying that his music “didn't suck.” After a few beers and a couple of impromptu jam sessions, a new band seemed inevitable.
Maybe the most remarkable thing about bluegrass is its ongoing sameness. There hasn't been too much innovation of the Appalachian sound since front porch concerts first gave mountain folk a musical escape from life's hardships, and Chatham County Line taps into Appalachia nostalgia, in a sense, doing its best to keep the sameness flowing. At the same time, even though these 'grassy tunes have the heart of, say, Bill Monroe and Jimmie Rodgers, there's a streak of rebellion—it's subtle, almost like a sleight of hand—pushing their peculiar breed of twang as far out as they could without losing too much authenticity." - Kevin Crowe (read the full article HERE.)

Mipso is a word you won’t find in any dictionary. But it is the name of an emerging musical group hailing from right here in North Carolina. Their name and their sound defies typical definition, yet their harmonies and lyrics are synonymous with many bluegrass acts of the past. The renegade traditionalists of Mipso are doing their part to take three part harmony and Appalachian influences into new territory. Formed in Chapel Hill in 2010, these four North Carolinians are touring the country to bring their unique music to anyone who will listen. With their second album, Dark Holler Pop, reaching the 8th spot on the Billboard Bluegrass charts, it is clear that Mipso are already finding themselves a deserving spot amongst their contemporary bluegrass brethren.
