Music! Music! MUSIC! Come to Vintage Valle Music at Baird’s Creek Presbyterian Church for a 7th big summer of community music! Come join us in July, and August, on the 3rd Sunday of each month, from 4 – 6 p.m. Admission is free.
July 15: July’s program is a triple whammy, opening with the exciting classic bluegrass music of The Dollar Brothers! There’s no better way to share the gift of music with our neighbors than a healthy helping of bluegrass and gospel favorites joyfully offered up by Watauga County’s favorite sons!
Gracing our gathering again this year are The Burnett Sisters. These talented shooting stars are wowing audiences, winning awards and accolades near and far with their traditional string music and beautiful harmonies.
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. The choir is led by Danny Whittington and accompanied by some of the area’s best rhythm and blues musicians.
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” 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. July’s giving focus is the Western Watauga Food Outreach. https://www.wwfood.org/ Bring, a can of soup, a box of cereal, a jar of peanut butter – any currently dated, non-perishable food to help alleviate food insecurity in our community.
