Nu-Blu releases Vagabonds with CD Release Party

The Earl Scruggs Center will host Award-winning Bluegrass group Nu-Blu is celebrating the release of their upcoming album Vagabonds. The event will give fans the chance to meet-and-greet with the chart topping band, along with a live performance of these brand new songs being performed for the first time ever. The upcoming project is being fueled by the new single, “Still Small Voice,” featuring Country Music Hall of Fame Statler Brothers member Jimmy Fortune, with Gospel favorite Ben Isaacs of The Isaacs.

Hailing from Siler City, NC, the textbook definition of a picturesque small southern town, Nu-Blu’s heart and soul is husband-and-wife duo Daniel and Carolyn Routh. Carolyn’s caramel-coated soprano is one of the band’s defining traits, at times a tender lullaby, at times a freight train headed straight for you, but always unwinding a surprising tale. Daniel is the group’s backbone, a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist who also handles band management. TJ Honaker on vocals and banjo, and Clint White on fiddle/mandolin round out the quartet’s warm, layered, American roots sound. Together they deliver upbeat, blazing-fingers pick work just as well as gentle, heartwarming ballads, and they do it all with a natural togetherness that can’t be faked, forged over hundreds of shows on the road.

In addition, there will be a special one evening only showing of the Flatt/Whitley guitar, sure to be a highlight to the event. The 1944 Martin D-28 Dreadnought guitar was used in performances by Lester Flatt with Flatt and Scruggs as well as the Nashville Grass.
