"The Sons of the South Band is the real deal. They perform showing a great respect for the music. Unlike many bands nowadays, they feature the proper, full line-up of fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandolin, and bass. With remarkable playing abilities, wonderful harmonic singing, and a congenial stage presence, the Sons of the South Band is easily one of the most well-received groups we’ve ever featured on our live broadcasts from the stage of the Ashe Civic Center. I highly recommend them as performers on any venue one might have in mind"

"Jackets of Grey", written by Connor Lambert, coming out on our new CD later this Spring:
"Sons of the South is a group from the Piedmont area of western North Carolina. While the band’s history spans over 50 years, there have been many changes in personnel and the current lineup includes Michael Souther (banjo), Gary Isenhour (guitar), Conner Lambert (mandolin), Franklin Rash (bass), and Rick Lowe (fiddle). This project contains a number of songs by Lambert and a couple from Souther. Other tunes include Michael Nesmith’s “What Am I Doing Hanging ’Round,” A&O Wood’s “The Hills Of Home,” Carter Stanley’s “Darlin Say Won’t You Be Mine,” and there is a nice arrangement of “Darlin’ Corey.” Original songs include “North Georgia Hills,” the instrumental “Pipers Gap,” and “The Lonesome Blues.” There are also two gospel tunes by Lambert, “The Journey” and “The Sinner.” This is a very good band, both instrumentally and vocally. The harmonies blend nicely and the picking is good, with a traditional approach to the music.(www.sonsofthesouthbluegrassband.com)"Bluegrass Unlimited
