Free Concert: Bluegrass on the Blackwater Featuring The Parsons 7pm Thursday October 6 at the Carolina Civic Center Historic Theater

Bluegrass on the Blackwater Featuring The Parsons

An annual event in partnership with the Robeson County Arts Council, this year features The Parsons, entertaining with their own mix of folk, Americana and bluegrass.

Jon and Caroline Parsons have shared their music and stories with audiences for 25 years. Their songs, stories and voices embrace the humor, beauty and mystery of life. They live in Caroline’s old family homeplace in Grays Creek NC, and are joined by their long-time musical partner and friend Jerome Hawkes. Caroline is a gifted songwriter, singer and bassist, and Jon and Jerome juggle guitars, banjos, and mandolins – in addition to doing their best to keep up with Caroline’s singing! The Parsons trio is seasoned by more than 15 years of playing and singing together at festivals, house concerts, roadhouses and campgrounds.

This concert is free and open to the public.
