About Us

Our Story

   Mebanesville introduces and delights live audiences with the best in roots, rhythm, and world music from the Mediterranean Basin to the British and Irish Isles down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

   Mebanesville began in the summer of 2000 as a group of neighbors and friends, playing an informal Friday evening music session at a coffee bar in Mebane, NC. Soon people were inviting the musicians to play for private parties and special events. The players took the name Mebanesville – Mebane’s name from the late 18th into the late 19th century prior to its incorporation as a town in the early 1880’s - to reflect their love of living locally but exploring music globally.
