Folkstar CD Release Celebration at Gravity Records

Saturday, October 5th, 2013

On October 5th, Karmic Fury Records artist Folkstar will celebrate the release of their newest album Loud and Clear at Gravity Records in Wilmington, NC. Folkstar will perform with a full band featuring local musicians Graham Wilson, Nick Simon, Dylan Linehan, and Leslie Wiegle. The event will also feature a special performance by local musician and CMA winner Crissie McCree.

Gravity Records is a local landmark and the hub of local musicians and music lovers. The Folkstar CD Release Celebration will double as a celebration of local music and local businesses.

Our favorite local libations shop Wilmington Wine will be on site with wine and beer, including a selection of local brews. Jacksonville pitbull charity Sugarheart Foundation will also be participating.

Sound will be provided by local audio engineers Karen Kane and Nyla Cione.

Carolina Music Award winners Crissie McCree and Karen Kane

A few weeks ago we posted about our local Wilmington nominees for the Carolina Music Awards and encouraged everyone to vote for our talented Wilmington representatives. Well, at the awards this weekend Wilmington artists won EVERY category in which they were nominated!

Congratulations to the following winners: Crissie McCree, Best Rock Female (who received her award from our dear friend Andy Washburn of NC Local Music, an avid promotor of local music in the Raleigh area); James Ethan Clark, Best Rock Male; Bootleg Dynasty, Best Americana Artist; Karen Kane, Best Producer (which we already knew, since she’s worked with Folkstar on both of their albums).

Further proof that Wilmington is becoming a music scene to be noticed. If you’re not out supporting local music, now is a good time to start!
