Carl White, former bass player and sometime drummer with Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, has been announced as the newest member of Monroeville. He will contribute vocally and on other instruments as well, while also assuming the position of senior statesman with the band, made up primarily of very young musicians.
Monroeville had a big week at World of Bluegrass last month, being selected as the first Momentum Band of the Year, a new award from the organization for artists deserving special recognition in the early stages of their career.
White says that he had his eye on Monroeville for some time, and is delighted to come onboard.
“I’ve known the guys for quite a while. I’ve listened to their music since the beginning. The reason I joined the band was because I think they have a bright future!! I hope there’s something I’ve learned from the 6 years with Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver that I can bring to the table.
I love these guys, and this band!! Come see us at a show!”
Speaking for the band, mandolinist Matthew Munsey welcomed their newest member.
“Carl White is a monster musician and vocalist with an upstanding reputation for professionalism.
He is also one of the best friends you could want! He will add a lot of versatility to Monroeville, as well as an entertaining stage presence.”
Look for Monroeville tour dates on their web site.
