The New Southern Ramblers are a dynamic old-time Appalachian stringband from the mountains of western North Carolina. With lively southern dance tunes, traditional vocals, and flatfoot dancing, they have entertained audiences and inspired dancers from Florida to Alaska and New England to California. For more than twenty years, they accompanied legendary Tennessee fiddler Ralph Blizard at concerts, festivals, and workshops throughout the United States. Recent performances include the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, Merlefest, and the Swannanoa Gathering. The band consists of John Herrmann (fiddle), Gordy Hinners (banjo), Phil Jamison (guitar), and Meredith McIntosh (bass).

Doors open at 7 PM. Arrive early to be sure of admission. Free; donations appreciated.

Monthly second-Friday Charlotte Folk Society Gatherings are family-friendly and free; donations are appreciated and essential to holding Gatherings in the Great Aunt Stella Center. Refreshments, a song circle, a slow old-time music jam, other open jam sessions, and an Appalachian dulcimer group follow the hour-long concert; visitors are welcome to join in or simply listen.

The Charlotte Folk Society is dedicated to promoting the ongoing enjoyment and preservation of traditional and contemporary folk music, dance, crafts and lore in the North and South Carolina's Piedmont area.
