Nu-Blu Video–Spooky

Time to get a check on the annual BOOGRASS happenings just before Halloween.

A quick search of the Internet doesn’t show much new this year. 

However one interesting video came to our attention early this morning.  We thought it creative enough to share.

Nu-Blu, the quickly rising bluegrass band from North Carolina has put together an interesting play on the season and the concept of performing or recording out-of-tune.  They say it’s a “scary” thought.  

Because “Out-of-Tune” can be a problem with any genre, the video’s music is not bluegrass and will obviously catch the attention of a wide spectrum of music lovers and performers.

You can watch the video here or in larger format on the You-Tube host site HERE.

Nu-Blu was founded by husband and wife team, Carolyn and Daniel Routh.  Carolyn, on bass, provides her trademark lead vocals with impressive clarity and vocal range and Daniel, on guitar, brings his songwriting and vocal talents to the group.

The two young guns, Levi Austin (banjo and vocals) and Austin Koener (mandolin) fill out the ranks providing the band with a solid and talented backbone.

Austin and Koerner as well as both of the Routh’s participated in the creation of the “TUNED” video.  Even the group’s label, Pinecastle Records, gets in on the credits as “Executive Producer”
