This past weekend, Campfires and Constellations performed at the Lincoln Theatre in Raleigh. The five members, all from North Carolina, and all students at UNC Chapel Hill, rocked the house with their Americana/country/outlaw sound. The group writes most of the songs they perform. Ernest Thompson, the banjo and pedal steel guitar player, hails from Greensboro, as does the band's producer and manager, Carter Fourqurean (not pictured). From left to right, band members include Ernest, Stephen (in the back playing drums, shirtless), Charlie, Corey, and Dan. The energetic quintet put on quite a performance at the Lincoln.
Campfires and Constellations has an album release party scheduled in Chapel Hill for April 17th. In the meantime, you can listen to their driving sound, here. Maybe we can get C&C to play in Greensboro before they go on tour this summer. It is nice to see a homegrown, North Carolina band gain recognition beyond the State. And hats off to the local boys, Ernest and Carter who got their start in Greensboro. Happy Monday! For many, it is time to put the weekend concerts on hold and get back to work!
