The Carter Brothers on Woodsongs

The Carter Brothers - Tim and Danny Reid CarterThe Carter Brothers (Danny and Tim) brought their eclectic bluegrass-fusion sound to The Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour this week. They appeared this past Monday (3/3) along with Irish folksinger Tommy Sands, and the video for the full program is available on the Woodsongs web site.

The Carters grew up in North Carolina, born into folk music royalty as relatives of the acclaimed Carter Family of Virginia. They have been touring together for more than 20 years, blending bluegrass and electric instruments into their own signature style and have developed a sizeable following in Europe as well as the US and Canada.

They now reside in Nashville where Tim also works as a session player and producer/engineer, and Danny focuses on songwriting.

    The Carter Brothers are an incredible act–both Tim and Danny are immensely talented artists. What’s not to love about stellar musicians who can blend bluegrass, soul, and good ol’ rock-n-roll into one delicious sound? I heard them play live in Key West a few years ago, and was instantly hooked. Their solo discs are great too. Tim’s banjo-riffic: “Bang Bang” and Danny’s rockin’ “Barcelona” are both getting heavy airplay on my iPod these days. I’m looking forward to hearing more from these talented brothers, and hope to see more coverage of them on the B.G.Blog. Cheers! Carla S.
