Information on The Whitetop Mountaineers from Charlotte Folk Society:
Our featured performers are The Whitetop Mountaineers, Martha Spencer and Jackson Cunningham, a young duo who perform in the traditions of the Southwest Virginia mountains. Their concerts feature tight harmony singing on country duets, traditional bluegrass numbers, old timey ballads, mountain gospel, and high energy Appalachian dancing by Martha.
Martha’s performance and dancing have all of the unbridled energy and joy of June Carter Cash as a young woman. The Great Aunt Stella Center is going to ring with fine old-time country duet singing and the sounds of fiddle, clawhammer banjo, mandolin, and guitar when The Whitetop Mountianeers make their Charlotte debut.
