featured in their entirety on our ‘May at Grandfather Mountain’ video
provide powerful yet sensitive accompaniment to the visual adventure of
springtime on one of the world’s most beautiful mountains.  Without the

experience would definitely be less exciting.”

About The Carter Brothers:
“Tim and Dan are blood
related to A.P., Sarah and Maybelle Carter but they don’t make a big
deal out of it. Like their mama, who taught them to rinse collard greens
in the Maytag, (the Carter Brothers) make their old-timey music with
tried and true ingredients and modern appliances,” says esteemed
mandolinist and vocalist Tim O’Brien, friend to Tim and Danny Carter.
Coupling exemplary
musicianship with the kind of tight harmony only siblings can claim, the
Carter Brothers have been performing around the country… and the
world… to adoring fans for more than two decades. Natives of High
Point, N.C., Tim and Danny Carter moved to Nashville 15 years ago,
quickly earning respect that crossed musical genres. After years of
producing and releasing their music themselves, the brothers signed a
recording contract in 2011 with Compass Records.
The Road To Roosky,
the Carter Brothers’ first Compass Records CD, was released in 2012,
garnering accolades and praise from around the world for its melding of
bluegrass and blues.
“I’ve been playing with my
brother for so long and he’s such a blues guitar player that all of that
rubbed off on my playing through the years. I wanted to make sure that
the banjo on this was not so much about playing Earl Scruggs style banjo
but that (the banjo) fit these tunes,” says Tim Carter of his playing
on The Road To Roosky.
The act’s next CD, Where the Green Grass Meets The Bluegrass,
is due out in 2013 on Compass Records. The project features the Carter
Brothers and Barney McKenna, renowned Irish banjo player of the The
Dubliners in McKenna’s final recordings before his death in 2012.
