WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- In this edition of Roy's Folks, meet a very talented group of musicians who put on a performance that tells about North Carolina’s music history.

It covers everything from the Moravian brass bands to “The 5 Royales,” Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees from Winston-Salem.

Many people say that this state has a music pedigree that is unmatched in the country. And if you count the number of people from the state who have been successful on “American Idol” then it starts to make sense.

The group calls themselves “Carolina Music Ways” and their stage performance is called “Carolina Live.” They put on the show for schools all across the area and have even developed a classroom curriculum to go along with it.

We caught up with the group at Summit School in Winston-Salem.
