"It’s not unusual for a mountain musician to be a part of several different musical traditions. A Blue Ridge fiddler might play in a mountain swing session on Friday night, sit in with an old-time band playing for a square dance on Saturday night, and sing in the church choir on Sunday morning. In this respect, Carley Arrowood is in good company. But Carley stands out in her youth: few artists as young as she have already mastered so many genres. She plays, sings, and writes bluegrass and gospel music, and was a classical performer as a child." ~ Sarah Bryan - Down The Road on the Blue Ridge Music Trails of NC

She plays with Darin and Brooke Aldridge, as well as John Cowan and Matt Menafee. And, she's been on The Grand Ole Opry! Check out this beautiful podcast featuring the amazing Carley Arrowood.
