UPDATE: The Red Clay Ramblers concerts co-hosted by the North Carolina Coastal Federation and the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum and Heritage Center will be postponed indefinitely due to uncertainty about Hurricane Matthew.
MOREHEAD CITY – The Core Sound Waterfowl Museum and Heritage Center and the North Carolina Coastal Federation will present the Tony Award-winning Red Clay Ramblers for two shows here in October.

- Clay Buckner – fiddle, harmonica
- Chris Frank – guitar, accordion, tuba, trombone
- Jack Herrick – bass, bouzouki, trumpet, pennywhistle

The Red Clay Ramblers shows are noted for humor, high energy and wide-ranging repertoire.
The museum is set to celebrate its 25th anniversary and the federation will mark its 35th year in 2017.
“These are two truly fine, highly significant groups, not only for Carteret County but for the whole state of North Carolina,” Simpson said. “Both of them exemplify the very best values in preserving, protecting and celebrating our social and natural heritage here on the coast. We’re thrilled to be making a joyful noise for them in Morehead City this fall.”
