‘King Mackerel & The Blues Are Running’ Returns to Carteret County

The Coastal Cohorts are bringing their hit musical “King Mackerel  & The Blues Are Running” back to Carteret County to celebrate the show’s  30th Anniversary .  Cohorts Don Dixon, Bland Simpson, and Jim Wann will perform their popular show, featuring songs and stories of the Carolina Coast  April 17&18 at Carteret Community College’s Joslyn Hall. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the shows begin at 7:30 p.m.

Their original music celebrates life on the Carolina Coast with a combination of upbeat tunes and ballads along with stories of pier-fishing, shag-dancing, ghosts and shifting sands.  New York Post theatre critic Clive Barnes called the show "A pure salt-watered delight!" The presentation is a joint fundraiser for the North Carolina Coastal Federation and the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum and Heritage Center.

When asked about the show’s beneficiaries, Bland Simpson said “AsKing Mackerel & The Blues Are Running” focuses on three old friends (the Coastal Cohorts) who like to get together as often as possible and fish the coastal Carolina waters, we’ve always known the show  shared deep, down-home values with the N.C. Coastal Federation and the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum & Heritage Center. Staging King Mackerel together has always been a wonderful experience!”

Simpson added "From both cultural and environmental perspectives, King Mackerel's Coastal Cohorts are straight-ahead fellows who want to see things stay good and healthy and right on the coast, not just for themselves but for all their families, kin and friends.  There's a we're-in-this-together Cohort spirit that also typifies the federation and the museum, and that's why the show and these two groups are such a good fit."
