Oh happy day!  One of the first folks your webgal saw at the CHWN ArtsCenter show was Daniel Coston.  Daniel is a wonderful professional photographer who has photographed the band and shared his photos with us over the years. 

Daniel has also published North Carolina Musicians: Photographs And Conversations (2013) This book features 140 of photos, 19 interviews, and stories about working with musicians throughout North Carolina.  One of those photos is Craver, Hicks, Watson, Newberry at the Carter Fold in June 2003.  That night, Johnny Cash also took the stage to memorialize his wife June Carter Cash who had passed away the month before. Johnny also appeared at the Fold two weeks later, and those were his live performances.

“Nobody better exemplifies the Carrboro - Chapel Hill music scene of a certain era than the quartet of Mike Craver, Bill Hicks, Jim Watson, and Joe Newberry. Craver, Hicks, and Watson belonged to the Red Clay Ramblers during their most glorious period, while banjo player, singer, and songwriter Joe Newberry fits in perfectly. The four deliver energetic and diverse music of an imagined southern place and time with absolutely the perfect tone and spirit. Nothing can make you feel as young as this fine old string band music,” says Art Menius, ArtsCenter Executive Director (pictured at left)

And from the Indy Week: Craver, Hicks, Watson and Newberry. Sure, the name suggests a small-town law firm, but Craver, Hicks, Watson and Newberry are a Tar Heel institution of another sort—education and entertainment. Four walking and talking roots-music lexicons, the members of this eponymous quartet are frenetic performers, uproarious entertainers and seasoned players all. They're a vital wellspring of regional heritage, a living library that delights from the stage.—Grayson Currin

Unfortunately, the memory card wasn't up to the task and ran out of room shortly before the rousing finish.  We'll try again at the next show, but the full version is available on the band's new CD "You've Been A Friend To Me."
