Videos: Final highlights of the World of Bluegrass, Night Five

Posted by on Wed, Oct 2, 2013 at 3:19 PM

We close our videos of World of Bluegrass 2013 with a few of our Saturday favorites.

Chatham County Line, "Living in Raleigh Now"
One week ago, it's unlikely that Chatham County Line's Dave Wilson would have thought it possible to write and perform what is undoubtedly the theme song to last week's inaugural IBMA World of Bluegrass festival in Raleigh. Wilson was inspired after "hopscotching" around to the variety of closely located downtown venues as part of the Ramble series. He went home and wrote about it—after all, what better way to make a compelling argument to an artist-run organization than to write them a song? It's a darn good one, too:  The crowd's feverish reaction to what's bound to become Raleigh's bluegrass anthem mirrored what seemed to be that of every visitor during the five-day event.

Kruger Brothers & The Kontras Quartet with Steve Martin, "Jack of the Wood"
After performing their lauded Appalachian Concerto with the Kontras Quartet, The Kruger Brothers enjoyed a surprise visit from the evening's headliner, Steve Martin. Sitting in to play a soaring instrumental number named after the Asheville watering hole, Martin added clawhammer banjo to "Jack of the Wood."

Jim Lauderdale & Della Mae, "Lost in the Lonesome Pines"
The likely winner for best harmony singing over the weekend might just have gone to the 2013 Emerging Artists of the Year, Della Mae. Joining esteemed singer and songwriter Jim Lauderdale, the sound emitting from the stage breezed through the alleyways downtown. Here they perform "Lost in the Lonesome Pines," the title track from Lauderdale's second album with bluegrass legend Ralph Stanley.

Charli Robertson (Flatt Lonesome), "The Man Who Made My Momma Cry"
As mentioned by Peter Blackstock, Peter Rowan performed with a mix of seemingly random pickers at the Convention Center on Saturday. Among them was Charli Robertson of the group Flatt Lonesome; she stunned the room with a deep version of "The Man Who Made My Momma Cry."

The Infamous Stringdusters, "Time to Part"
Charlottesville's Infamous Stringdusters took to the Red Hat Amphitheater stage to add a newgrass flavor to the evening's festivities. After seeing their first show in Raleigh a few years ago a few blocks away at The Berkeley Cafe, it was fun to watch the group stretch out on the large stage. Below is a new number from the group, "Time to Part."
