Carolina Blue is a Brevard, NC based band whose roots run deep in the tradition of Bill Monroe. The band was formed in 2007 after the release of the album "Nothing So Blue" by Bobby Powell and Tim Jones. Carolina Blue won the South Carolina State Bluegrass Championship at RenoFest in 2011. They also received their first Vocal Group of The Year Nomination at the 2018 Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America, or SPBGMA, Awards Show. They have appeared on the hit TV show “Song Of The Mountains” as well as “The Bluegrass Trail” series on RFDTV. The band's repertoire consists of original songs, including Tim Jones's "Spring Will Bring Flowers," which was recorded by 2014 International Bluegrass Music Association's Entertainers of the Year - Balsam Range, as well as many bluegrass and gospel favorites, all created and performed in the traditional style.
