String Music Masters: Author Elizabeth Carlson with Musician Michael Orlando

Join beloved Davidson mandolinist Michael Orlando and director of Carolina Music Ways, Princeton graduate, and author of String Music Masters Elizabeth Carlson for an evening of live music and literature.

The roots of American music are deeply grounded in North Carolina’s music history. In fact, North Carolina musicians like Doc Watson, Charlie Poole, and rising star Rhiannon Giddens pioneered and mastered the genres of old-time and bluegrass music, in effect creating the music genre we know and love today. Elizabeth Carlson profiles these and other masters of string music in this fascinating record of North Carolina’s musical past, present and future entitled North Carolina String Music Masters.
