Review: Carolina Road - Back to My Roots

Back To My RootsBy Joe Ross
It's been about four or five years since I reviewed Carolina Road's two album releases on Tom T. Hall's Blue Circle Records label. I found the hardworking band from North Carolina to be fully dedicated to presenting a traditional bluegrass sound with a copious amount of personalized contemporary charisma. Now associated with Rural Rhythm Records, this is the band's second release on that label. While the band has experienced a few personnel changes on guitar and bass over the years, the stability in this group are still Lorraine Jordan (mandolin, vocals), Josh Goforth (fiddle, vocals), and Ben Greene (banjo, vocals). They bring strength and solidity to the table. The band's newest members are Tommy Long (guitar, lead vocals) and Eddie Biggerstaff (bass). Both have plenty of experience and fit right in.
