About The Local Boys: The legacy of bluegrass music lives on in many styles, but the musicians defining themselves in tradition uphold the stories and techniques of yesterday’s music. For more than two decades, one band doing that has been The Local Boys, a Bluegrass and Americana band based in Charlotte. The Local Boys love music that has grown and evolved over the decades — old-time, bluegrass, country, and rock ‘n’ roll.

Beginning their musical journey over 20 years ago in Maryland, The Local Boys have a long tradition of celebrating the deep roots of traditional bluegrass music. They’ve performed across the country at iconic events such as Merlefest, Brushy Mountain Apple Festival, Louisiana Spring Fest, Mountain Music Day Festival, Heritage and Harvest Festival, Hot Rod Power Tour, and more.

Releasing their first original ten-song album entitled Stories in 2022, The Local Boys take pride in their past as a band while also looking toward the future and all of the new opportunities that it brings. You’ll love this unique style of Bluegrass!
