We had so much fun watching our friends in Carolina Story perform this past week at Folk Alliance International that we ended up seeing them play three showcases – the most we saw of anyone else that played. The Nashville based duo was originally formed in Memphis while Emily and Ben were attending Visible School. After graduation they decided to get married and move to Nashville.
We invited them last year to come to Ardent to record an episode of The Warm Up. They ended up touring quite extensively with Star & Micey and this song, by Nick Redmond, was a direct result of that partnership. Look for it on an upcoming vinyl 7 inch along with their song “Gold” later this year.
Carolina Story‘s unique style of Folk music is derived from the dynamic of a married couple creating it. Their blended harmonies backed by guitar, harmonica and suitcase percussion create a sound that is solely their own. Their songwriting is based on their personal experience together on the road.
