June 20, 2014. The first concert in the park in Banner Elk was a great success. Annie Robinette and her band played a great concert and all those who attended the show had a wonderful time dancing to the rocking numbers and were treated to some slower songs which showcased Annie’s powerful singing voice.
The Banner Elk Chamber of Commerce’s Summer Concert Series will continue on Thursday nights at 6:30 p.m. through Aug. 28. With no rain dates, the concert committee hopes for clear skies.
