Hot Rize in Raleigh

Tim O'Brien
hotrize.com

“Hot Rize” is a bluegrass band that takes its name from an “ingredient” in Martha White brand flour and cornmeal. Formed in Colorado in the late 1970s , the band’s current line-up plays in Meymandi Concert Hall in Raleigh this weekend.  Hot Rize is deep fried in bluegrass but as guitarist and founding member Tim O’Brien told Eric Hodge in a recent phone conversation, the four young fellows that formed band had interests that went beyond bluegrass.

Eric Hodge hosts WUNC’s broadcast of Morning Edition, and files reports for the North Carolina news segments of the broadcast. He started at the station in 2004 doing fill-in work on weekends and All Things Considered.
