June 20 – The Parsons
Jon and Caroline Parsons have shared the joys and trials of their lives together with audiences for over 25 years. It’s all there – the love, the loss, the work, the celebration – and it’s the real thing. Their songs, stories and voices are built for audiences ready to embrace the humor, beauty and mystery of life. They live in rural southeastern NC (Grays Creek), and are often joined by their long-time musical partner and friend Jerome Hawkes. Caroline is a gifted songwriter, singer and bassist, and Jon and Jerome will juggle guitars, banjo, and mandolins – in addition to doing their best to keep up with Caroline’s singing! This trio is seasoned by more than 15 years of playing and singing together – and it shows!
