The South Carolina Broadcasters
The South Carolina Broadcasters bring a unique brand of American roots music that hearkens back to the 1930s and 40s – a time when country music was inclusive and uncomplicated – to the stage. Their razor sharp harmonies, exceptional multi- instrumentation, and fabulous song selection will have listeners riveted to their seats. This unique trio has put their own spin on the music of the foothills.
They’ve been members of The Whitetop Mountain Band and Roan Mountain Hilltoppers yet they’re not looking backward. Between Jackson Cunningham and David Sheppard’s ability to write a new song that sounds old and Ivy Sheppard’s prowess for digging up forgotten recordings, The Broadcasters most always have new songs in the works.
Their recent releases “We’ll Sing Once More” and “A Distant Land To Roam” feature a broad and mature mix of sounds ranging from Surry County bluegrass to Carter Family country and even the Cajun sounds of Lafayette. Audiences wherever they go connect with the Broadcasters through heart songs and good old fashioned entertainment.
