The new release will be available Sept. 10 and features the baritone vocals and guitar picking of Tommy Long, along with outstanding traditional musicians Josh Goforth on the fiddle and Ben Greene on the banjo, who have been with the band nine years. Band leader Lorraine Jordan on mandolin and tenor vocals, along with John Bradley on bass, round out this extremely talented band.

As the founding member and band leader for Carolina Road, Jordan’s showmanship and chemistry with the audience makes the group one of the most popular bands among bluegrass fans today. Jordan has fronted Carolina Road for more than a decade and has seven national recordings to her credit.

The band has earned a reputation as one of the hardest working bands in bluegrass, averaging 60 bluegrass festivals in the U.S. and Canada annually along with headlining the Bluegrass Cruise and hosting the Canadian Bluegrass Awards. Carolina Road’s performance is a hard driving traditional sound with invigorating instrumentals, smooth blending vocals, and all the energy that you can stand.
