Friday September 2

7:30pm-Closing Live Music: Folk and Dagger. Folk and Dagger are a folk rock group from Boone, NC, whose original trio formed in 2007. The band includes singer-songwriter Doris Bazzini Crothers on rhythm guitar and vocals, Colin Crothers on lead guitar, and Colleen Tarantino Utter on vocals. Originally singing as a church choir group, the band was joined by Charlie Ochoa and then Jimmy Puchalski on percussion. More recently, the foursome includes Boone native, John Fulkerson on djembe, shaker, and tambourine. The band’s soulful harmonies and Crothers’ acoustic lead guitar style have been likened to “Indigo Girls meet the Beatles.” Bazzini Crothers’ songs focus on love and life’s dramas including annoying co-workers, juggling marriage and children, and the occasional need to carry whiskey in one’s purse.

Saturday September 3

8:30pm-Closing Live Music: The Paper Crowns. The Paper Crowns make two-piece acoustic music sound huge! They are stomping on drums while they are plucking strings and singing harmonies often all at the same time! There’s nobody doing it like The Paper Crowns are doing it. It’s hard to find a truly unique band…on top of that it’s hard to find a band that delivers the emotional spectrum from sweet and heartbreaking earnest ballads to barn burning gypsy raving conga frenzied sweaty dance tunes. The Paper Crowns are solid players on their instruments….see this amazing band live! They pride their sets on improvisation mixed with fine compositions and great lyrics. Most of all, The Paper Crowns want you to feel good and feel recharged when you listen to their music….it’s full of heart and soul and all of the good old spirit that’s still roaming the land. Jeremy Greene – Mandolin, guitar and vocals.

Sunday September 4

Forest Literacy

Appropriate for Ages 8 and up; children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Please no pets.
When you walk through the woods, what do you see? Most of us see the plants, animals and nonliving objects but fail to read the story behind these.

Join a Ranger and learn the skills of reading the forest. Become forest literate and unlock the secrets of the forest! Program is appropriate for ages 8 through adult. Dress appropriately for outdoor conditions and wear hiking footwear. We will have a brief discussion followed by a hike lasting approximately one hour.  For Directions to the park office, visit https://goo.gl/oq7dAH.
