Earl and Max Carawan are third generation musicians from rural Hyde County. Rufus Carawan, their grandfather, encouraged all his family members to learn to play the banjo, fiddle, and guitar for square dances and local gatherings. For years the brothers played old-time music, bluegrass, and early country music. They received a 2004 Brown-Hudson award for traditional artists for continuing a musical legacy in their part of the state.
