About


Charles Pettee is a guitar and mandolin-wielding songwriter and singer from Asheville, NC with a strong commitment to music education who loves sharing the catchy rhythms and melodies of southern Bluegrass and Folk music, as well as the segregation-defying stories behind this culturally diverse tapestry of sounds. Transitioning from fronting Chapel Hill, NC’s world-traveling Bluegrass band The Shady Grove Band for over 25 years, Mr. Pettee has become a master teaching artist and music educator whose programs and residencies feature interactive audience participation and are in high demand throughout North and South Carolina.

Pettee offers a number of age-adjusted presentations that align with SC and NC Standards for both Music and Social Studies for grades preK-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12. Along with his group "Charles Pettee & FolkPsalm," Mr. Pettee also performs at festivals and special events with many of NC’s finest acoustic musicians, including his son, guitar player Jackson Pettee, under the name “Slippery Hill,” with whom he is currently at work on his 14th CD/album. He has logged over 6,000 performances over the course of his career.

Mr. Pettee came to our school as a part of the MUSE program here in Spartanburg County. Not only is he an engaging and knowledgeable musician, but he is well-versed in the academic/school setting. His friendly nature, patience, and enthusiastic attitude make him an excellent choice for residencies!
