Bluegrass Wednesdays - The Zinc Kings


at Foothills Brewpub


The Zinc Kings began in the fall of 2010 with musicians playing in the UNCG Old Time ensemble. Christen Blanton, Dan Clouse and Mark Dillon realized that, while they loved Appalachian music, there was an area not being addressed – the music of the North Carolina Piedmont. Music from this region tends to be more heavily influenced by the blues tradition and it is reflected in many of the tunes The Zinc Kings play.
