Vintage Valle Music

 Vintage Valle Music continues at Baird’s Creek Presbyterian Church for an 8th big summer of community music! Come join us in the summer months, on the 3rd Sunday of each month, from 4 – 6 p.m. Held indoors, concerts are informal. Admission is FREE!

July 21, 2019: July’s program opens with the exciting classic bluegrass and gospel music of The Dollar Brothers who 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.

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.

Each month we feature a local need with suggestions of items to add to that month’s drive. In July, we are collecting items suggested by Seby B Jones Regional Cancer Center staff to include in a Care Kit to give to chemo patients when they start their treatment. Your contribution will help us meet that goal and will be greatly appreciated.

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.
