Keeping with Tradition
Pinecastle Music recording artists Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road have a distinct sound and charismatic stage show, which sets them apart from many traditional bluegrass bands. Affectionately known as the “Lady of Tradition” in bluegrass, Lorraine has fronted Carolina Road for over 15 years. The band’s distinct sound and old time flair can be attributed to the bluegrass-rich area of North Carolina from which they hail and borrow their name. As the founding member and band leader for Carolina Road, Lorraine Jordan’s showmanship and chemistry with the audience makes the group one of the most popular bands among bluegrass fans today.
In 2019 the band released a brand new single on Pinecastle Records called, “Why Can't Blue Grass (Just Be True Grass Again)” with special guests and both IBMA Male Vocalists of the Year, Junior Sisk and Danny Paisley. The effort went on to capture the #1 song on the National Survey chart for four months in a row and created a forceful movement, renewing a passion within the industry for traditional bluegrass music.
Lorraine’s handpicked Carolina Road band is comprised of well-known musicians Ben Greene, Randy Graham, Matt Hooper, Allen Dyer, and Joe Pessalano, who have played with a “Who’s Who” in the industry, including Charlie Moore, The Bluegrass Cardinals, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, James King, Lost & Found, David Parmley & Continental Divide, and Don Rigsby, to name just a few. Their stellar musicianship and versatility ensure award-winning powerhouse performances of every song, be it “True” or “Country” Grass, or a specialty project, recorded live or in-studio.
