Alice Gerrard Record Release “Follow the Music”

| October 10, 2014

AliceGerrardIn a career spanning some 40-plus years, Alice Gerrard has known, learned from, and performed with many of the old-time and bluegrass greats and has in turn earned worldwide respect for her own important contributions to the music. 12-time Grammy Award winner Emmylou Harris has described Alice Gerrard as “the real deal with the right stuff who hasn’t forgotten where country music came from, with a voice that harkens back to the likes of Sara and Maybelle.”  On Thursday, October 30th at 8pm, The ArtsCenter will host the record release of Gerrard’s new album “Follow the Music” featuring M.C. Taylor of Hiss Golden Messenger.

Tickets are $12 General advance, $10 Friends/Student advance, and $15 Day of Show. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit or call the Box Office at (919) 929-2787. The ArtsCenter is located at 300-G E. Main St. in Carrboro.

The trailblazing folksinger famously collaborated with Hazel Dickens. Their classic recordings for Folkways and Rounder in the ’60’s and 70’s “rank among the most influential recordings in folk music history,” (All Music Guide), and laid the groundwork for many artists, especially female bluegrass and folk musicians.

‘Follow The Music’ features traditional tunes and original songs by Alice, produced by Hiss Golden Messenger’s M.C. Taylor, and features members of Hiss Golden Messenger and Megafaun. Available on LP/CD/DL via Tompkins Square,September 30th, 2014.
