The Huckleberry Brothers will also be in concert on Saturday, February 7 from 7:00 p.m. as part of Cameron Art Museum’s 10th Annual Civil War Living History Weekend: Forks Road…The Beginning of the End. Headquartered in the rural coastal plains of eastern North Carolina, the Huckleberry Brothers band was formed to explore their interest in traditional and popular music of mid-19th century America after meeting as American Civil War reenactors. The group’s name Huckleberry Brothers was chosen because “We wanted something that would not be distinct to either North or South, nor militaristic sounding…Huckleberries are both blue and gray on the outside…”
The music is composed of songs, ballads, and fiddle tunes from the 1700’s through 1865 performed on authentically reproduced instruments designed and created in the materials of the mid-1800s. They include 5-string banjo, fiddle, guitar, mandolin, mountain dulcimer, tin whistle, harmonicas, bones and tambourine. For more information about the Huckleberry Brothers visit: www.huckleberrybrothers.com. This event is free and open to the public. Dance and performance in the Weyerhaeuser Reception Hall.
