Dewey & Leslie Brown and
The Carolina Gentlemen

Burlington, North Carolina’s Dewey and Leslie Brown are a power couple with bluegrass talent who bring together the sounds of Ralph Stanley mixed with Hazel Dickens.  Dewey played fiddle as a Clinch Mountain Boy for Dr. Stanley for 11 years, until he died in 2016. Moreover, Dewey released CD,  “Traditional Fiddle,” featuring Ralph Stanley and The Clinch Mountain Boys. Leslie is an authentic coal miner’s daughter raised by her grandparents in the Appalachian Mountains of Vansant, Virginia.  Her upbringing in those mountains has played a significant role in her songwriting, dancing, and singing. Leslie is about the most authentic mountain girl you will ever meet. Together, their music is powerful and genuine to bluegrass tradition. Dewey and Leslie currently own The Liberty Showcase Theater in Liberty, North Carolina. They also run two festivals, “Deweyfest” and “Gospelfest.” Their music continues to be a favorite amongst Bluegrass Radio programmers and listeners.
