The Highlander String Band – Live on WPAQ

November 2, 2019 @ 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM EDT

HSB - Earle Theater- November 2014 - 02 - 500x357

The whole band is super-psyched to be back on The Merry-Go-Round live show on WPAQ in Mt. Airy, NC.  We’re on the air from noon until 1:30 PM on Saturday, 02-NOV-2019.  The Merry-Go-Round is second only to The Grand Ole Opry as a continuously broadcasting live radio show.  We have appeared here once or twice each year for a long time and never tire of the excitement of the crowd in The Earle Theater and the thrill of being on live radio.  Tune in here and enjoy the show with us.

Here’s the event listing from the website:

“Join us at The Historic Earle Theatre & Old Time Music Heritage Hall, in Downtown Mount Airy for the Merry Go Round. This November 2nd edition of the program features The Slate Mountain Ramblers and The Highlander String Band! Don’t forget your dancin’ shoes!”

More info on the show:

Through the years, a host of regional and national music legends, including Tommy Jarrell, Benton Flippen, the Carter Family, Mac Wiseman, Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs, and Bill and Charlie Monroe have appeared on the broadcast. The program’s popularity and long history of devotion to regional music has made it the SECOND LONGEST CURRENTLY RUNNING live radio programs in the nation.
