We encourage you to come visit and worship with us at 9 a.m. every Sunday.
Vintage Valle Music
Vintage Valle Music returns to Baird’s Creek Presbyterian Church for an 8th big summer of community music! Come join us in the summer months of June, July, and August, on the 3rd Sunday of each month, from 4 – 6 p.m. Admission is free.
June 16: We begin this year with Kay and Patrick Crouch, http://strictlycleananddecent.com/ from Caldwell County. This multi-talented husband and wife duo will share their popular act dedicated to traditional American music born in these mountains, a blend of old and new, bluegrass and Celtic, country and jazz. Back by popular demand will be Wilkes County storyteller ReVonda Crow, https://www.facebook.com/revondacrowstoryteller/ followed by The Burnett Sisters Band. https://www.facebook.com/theburnettsistersband/ These talented shooting stars are wowing audiences, winning awards and accolades near and far with their traditional string music and beautiful harmonies.
July 21: July’s program opens with the exciting classic bluegrass and gospel music of The Dollar Brothers who love to share the gift of their music with our neighbors. Vocalist Sarah McGuire, accompanied by her father, Mark McGuire, will appear at Vintage Valle Music only in July this year. Sarah writes much of her own material and selects her music from a wide range of musical genres. We close the July show with the soul-touching, toe-tapping, rafter-rattling music of The Junaluska Gospel Choir, a Boone institution of sophisticated singing talent in the black gospel tradition.
August 18: Local favorites Folk & Dagger join us for our final show, offering our community an opportunity to enjoy their mix of nostalgic folk and popular culture songs, hidden gems they’ve discovered, and beautiful originals penned by Doris Bazzini. Again this year, our audience is in for a treat – the opportunity to sing along with well-known and much-loved favorites offered by The Threshold Singers, a volunteer choir of local folks who just like to get together to sing and play instruments suitable for their moods and their talents. And, finally, in the time-honored tradition of summer celebrations, The Moravian Brass Band, led by Michael Salley, closes our summer with familiar and traditional instrumentals mixed with a touch of classical, reminiscent of days gone by.
Come as you are, stay all afternoon or just sit a spell and enjoy the gift of music our neighbors bring to the back-porch atmosphere of Baird’s Creek. Music is an eclectic mix of bluegrass, folk, gospel, country, patriotic, pop, jazz, old-time and new, familiar and original – whatever our artists feel led to share. Come and join us. There’ll be no preaching, nor passing the hat, just good-time entertainment and neighborly visits.
Entertainment is from 4 to 6 p.m. Held indoors, concerts are informal. Admission is FREE! Each month we feature a local need with suggestions of items to add to that month’s drive. In June, our giving focus is the Western Watauga Food Outreach. Bring a can of fruit, veggies, or soup, a box of cereal, a jar of peanut butter – any currently dated, non-perishable food to help alleviate food insecurity in our community. They really need canned fruit! https://www.wwfood.org/
Baird’s Creek Presbyterian Church is located at 2147 N.C. Hwy 194 S, Vilas NC 28692, just 2 miles north of The Original Mast General Store, in Valle Crucis.
