The last days of summer are upon us. Come to Vintage Valle Music at Baird’s Creek Presbyterian Church for our goodbye to summer, the last performances in our 7th summer of community music! Come join us in August, on the 3rd Sunday of each month, from 4 – 6 p.m. Admission is free.
Returning this year, by popular demand, 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, soulful originals penned by Doris Bazzini Crothers.

August 2018 brings to our venue for the first time, a popular area duo from Caldwell County. Award-winning Kay and Patrick Crouch have taught and inspired thousands of students and others in the region; they are also premier promoters of the music of Caldwell County and Southern Appalachia. AND, they are multi-talented entertainers, delighting audiences with their eclectic repertoire of folk songs, fiery breakdowns and songs of bluegrass and Celtic airs and dance tunes, popular jazz standards, western swing music, and classic country.

And, what says a summer afternoon more than The Moravian Brass Band who brings us a mix of familiar, traditional and classical tunes reminiscent of days gone by? Directed by Michael Salley, this homage group will transport avid listeners to the sounds of Old Salem celebrations and processionals.
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. In August we are collecting classroom supplies for our community schools. Suggested donations include paper towels, facial tissues, disinfectant wipes, hand sanitizer, adhesive bandages, zipper-lock bag, cups, plates, and napkins.
