Blue Ridge Music Trails Fine Tuned Concert at Cowee School Arts & Heritage Center

May 28, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Josh Jones with Sav Sankaran, and Bayla Davis with Cary Fridley

Listen to live collaborations of seasoned traditional artists and emerging musicians of Western NC! These concerts are the exciting culmination of the Blue Ridge Music Trails’ trailblazing musical project called Fine Tuned. This initiative connects Western NC musicians for a shared growth experience to enrich the current traditional music of the NC mountains and foothills. With the support of the North Carolina Arts Council’s Spark the Arts Grant, the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area is proud to present the Fine Tuned Concert Series.

Josh Jones and Sav Sankaran have two major musical commonalities. Both are classically trained vocalists, and both are high caliber bluegrass musicians. Together, they meld their classical chops with some high lonesome flavor to offer a fresh bluegrass sound.

Bayla Davis is still in her teens, but she’s already making waves with her banjo prowess and emotive vocals. Cary Fridley has had a lengthy career as a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist across an impressive range of styles. Cary has shared her experience and knowledge of country music harmony singing, and Bayla has brought her own banjo spark to some fresh reimagining of well-loved standards.
