It’s the good old days on the Southern coast, but a hurricane has blown the roof off Miss Mattie Jewell’s 1920s-style Corncake Inlet Inn. The Coastal Cohorts musical trio comes to her rescue, singing and yarn-spinning to raise money and put the roof back to right, so Miss Mattie won’t have to sell out to the condo-minded Greedhead Development Corporation. The News & Observer called King Mackerel “a musical Valentine to coastal life . . . the songs deal with things anybody who's ever been to the coast can identify with ‑‑ pier fishing, joy riding on the strand, hurricanes, living on the sound side."
King Mackerel & The Blues Are Running: Songs & Stories of the Carolina Coast has been performed by the Coastal Cohorts (Don Dixon, Bland Simpson, and Jim Wann) all across North Carolina and the South, as well as at the Kennedy Center in Washington and in New York City, where its Off-Off-Broadway run was hailed by the New York Post, saying “Carolina fish tale is quite a catch -- a pure, salt-watered delight!”
