Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road

Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road have combined masterful musicianship and a creative sound to entertain audiences in 40 states and 13 countries while scoring multiple hits, industry accolades and collaborations with other legendary artists.

Since their beginnings in 1998, the band has achieved three No. 1 songs on the Bluegrass chart with “A Light in the Window,” “That’s Kentucky” and “True Grass.” “True Grass” also climbed to No. 1 on the Roots Music chart and topped the Bluegrass Unlimited National Bluegrass Survey for an astounding 16 consecutive months.

When the band isn’t touring, they host several events weekly at Lorraine’s Coffee House & Music in Garner, N.C. Down the road in Raleigh, Lorraine and the band are a crowd favorite at the city’s annual Wide Open Bluegrass Festival. The group also produces and performs at Christmas in the Smokies in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., the Willow Oak Music Festival in Roxboro, N.C., and the North Carolina Banjo Fest in Clemmons.

The band is working on two musical projects due out in 2020. “Patriotic Grass” features songs “devoted to what’s great about America and honoring our military,” says Lorraine, adding that additional noteworthy bands perform on the disc. A second project pairs Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road with multi-Grammy nominee Michael Martin Murphey (“Carolina in the Pines”).

Marty Warburton & Home Girls

Marty Warburton & Home Girls bring a sound unlike any other. Bluegrass and Gospel come together with soaring harmony vocals and solid instrumentation.

Volume Five

Volume Five, the Mississippi-based group that started as a casual jam band in 2008, has grown into one of bluegrass music’s most popular and unique acts. The soulful lead vocals by fiddler Glen Harrell and the band’s tight instrumentals and vocal harmony have earned the group two IBMA Awards, numerous nominations, and many accolades.

Glen Harrell founded Volume Five early in 2008, and the band has now grown into one of bluegrass music’s most unique new acts. “When I put this group together, I knew the style of music I wanted us to play and the goals we wanted to achieve. It was just a matter of finding the right guys who wanted to create their own identity in the industry. I didn’t just want us to be another band that moves onto the scene and is gone in a few years, but one that would have a unique sound that players and listeners would remember for many years to come – one that sounded like no other band in the business,” said Glen.

In 2010, the band signed with Mountain Fever Records. The label released Down In A Cell, followed by the 2011 release of Children of the Mountain and Run in 2013. In 2014, the label released Volume Five’s well-crafted southern gospel-tinged bluegrass album, The Day We Learned To Fly. The album earned Volume Five two International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Nominations that year. They received nominations for the IBMA Emerging Artist of the Year, and another for the IBMA Gospel Recorded Performance of the Year for The Day We Learn To Fly (album), Stacy Richardson and Leroy Drumm (writers), Volume Five (producers).

Continuing with that success, in 2015, Mountain Fever Records released the band’s fifth album on the label titled Voices. Due to their live performance popularity and album success, they received two separate industry award nominations. Volume Five received a Nomination for the 2015 IBMA Emerging Artist of the Year Award. They also garnered a Nomination from the Gospel Music Association (GMA) Dove Awards for Bluegrass Song of the Year for the song, “Daddy Was An Old Time Preacher Man.” The successful tune featured guest vocals by Rhonda Vincent on the Dolly Parton cover song.

In 2016, Volume Five’s album, Drifter, made its debut on the Billboard™’ Top 10 Bluegrass Album Chart. This highly successful project, and one of their most-streamed albums to date, rightfully earned the group two IBMA Awards in 2017. They won the Emerging Artist of the Year Award and the prestigious the Song of the Year Award for “I Am A Drifter,” written by Donna Ulisse and Marc Rossi.

In 2018, Volume Five celebrated its 10th anniversary with yet another Billboard™ Top 10 Bluegrass Chart album – Milestones. They followed up with the 2019 release of For Those Who Care To Listen, which includes two #1 hit radio singles (“The Army Vet Song” and “The 15th of October”) on the Bluegrass Today Top 20 Song Chart. In addition, a highly viewed video for “The 15th of October” was released. The video was filmed during one of their recording sessions at one of bluegrass music’s favorite venues – Everett’s Music Barn in Suwanee, Georgia.

Of course, 2020 and 2021 brought many challenges to all of us. Early 2021 just after Volume Five finished recording, beloved banjoist Patton Wages suffered a stroke. Patton continues to improve, so please keep him in your prayers. Late fall 2021, Mountain Fever Records released the first single, “When Karma Comes Calling,” from that recording session. The song quickly debuted at #1 on the Bluegrass Today Top 20 Weekly Song Chart and reached the top spot two other times.

Volume Five’s touring schedule has afforded them the benefit of playing with numerous artists over the years, some of whom have become fans, such as Buddy Melton of Balsam Range, who says, “What defines a great band? Superior musicianship, impeccable singing, moving song selections. Volume Five has all the above and more. Extremely talented, yet humble, and genuinely real people. Volume Five has a magical quality about them that will undoubtedly make a lasting impression in the world of acoustic music.”

Phil Salazar & The Kin Folk

Phil has been a performer since the day he was born in Ventura, California, when he crawled around the stage of his father’s symphony. He has been playing the violin since he was 5 years old. At the age of 14, he heard and began to play blues and rock fiddle, rebelling against his classical roots.

In his late teens, he began playing a number of genres and has since played with some of the best from each one: rock (Bob Weir, Kenny Loggins, Jimmy Buffett), blues (Nick Gravenites, Pete Sears, Steve Miller), bluegrass (John McEuen, Nick Forster, Peter Wernick), country (Kix Brooks, Zac Brown), folk (Kate Wolf, Jay Ungar), Cajun (Mark Savoy, Steve Riley), Irish (Kevin Burke), and jazz (Bruce Forman, Shelly Burg).

In 1984, Phil started The Phil Salazar Band. Over the last 35 years, the band has become like family and is now called Phil Salazar and the Kin Folk. They have recorded 7 albums, two for the legendary Flying Fish Records, and currently have two on the way, “All That! For This?” and “Acoustic Jam.” Due to their incredible acoustic diversity, they have become fan favorites at concerts and festivals up and down the West Coast, such as Live Oak Music Festival, Strawberry Music Festival, Huck Finn Jubilee, Wintergrass, Kate Wolf Music Festival, California Bluegrass Association Festival, Parkfield Bluegrass Festival, and more.

Bill Flores guitarist/dobroist/accordionist is a musician extraordinaire, he has tours with Jeff Bridges’ band, The Abiders, for many years. He’s highly in demand for recording and stage work.

Elizabeth Rizor student of Phil’s who is pursuing her doctorate by day and playing with the Kin Folk by night. She triples the IQ of the band when she walks on stage. Like Phil, she’s a classical violinist gone bad who is learning how to play like a true fiddler.

Tom Corbett mandolinist/guitarist/vocalist and the funniest guy on stage. 2011 Kerrville New Folk Songwriter Finalist and a 2012 Telluride Bluegrass Festival Troubadour who has toured with John McEuen and Robin and Linda Williams.

Bill Knopf banjoist/guitarist/vocalist is Internationally known banjo player, he has played with almost everybody and has taught the rest. He was a nationally featured player with Doc Severinsen’s touring Las Vegas show.

Rick Borella is an amazing bassist is an amazing bass player who has never played a note that Phil didn’t like! He’s a top player in Santa Barbara County and has been playing with Phil since 1984.
