8pm-Closing Live Music: Mare Wakefield. “Every star in the sky will shine for you.” In the refrain of Ironwood opener “Enjoy the View,” Mare Wakefield might just be singing from experience. The girl from Southeast Texas went from playing Oregon coffee shops to headlining major Northwest festivals. A songwriting scholarship brought her to Boston’s Berklee College of Music, which boasts alums such as Gillian Welch and Aimee Mann (two of many artists that Mare has been compared to). Currently based in Nashville, Mare—pronounced Mary—continues her upward trajectory by co-writing with hit songwriters and burning up the highways with her fourth studio album in tow.

8pm-Closing Live Music: Maureen Renihan Jazz Trio. Maureen Renihan is a Boone based vocalist performing throughout the high country, piedmont and foothill regions of North Carolina. Influenced by great icons such as Billie Holiday, Judy Garland, and Ella Fitzgerald, Maureen sets a nostalgic tone with her soothing vocals and sincere delivery.

This Week at BRAHM

Jan. 19: Coffee with the Curator, 11 a.m.

Exhibition and Collections Director Dianna Loughlin will guide you on this exclusive tour through the museum’s permanent collection, selections from which have been recently displayed.

“Dianna is very knowledgeable about the exhibits and the tour is free with your entry to the museum. There’s complimentary coffee and it’s a really nice way for people to come together,” Weinstein said. “You’re learning something, but you’re also socializing and getting to see the museum from a different angle.”

The tour will offer a behind-the-scenes look at the museum’s exhibits, including artwork by North Carolina native Elliott Dangerfield.

“We have some fabulous pieces by Elliott Dangerfield, who was a North Carolina-born artist who spent a lot of time in Blowing Rock. There’s a large local connection for him, and his work is just really, really beautiful,” said Weinstein. “The local connection really appeals to people. Before we had these we’d always have people asking about the Dangerfield paintings, so I think people will be really excited about it.”

Jan. 21: Birds of the High Country with Curtis Smalling, 11 a.m.

This edition of the monthly Scholars and Scones BRAHM events brings in Curtis Smalling, Audubon NC’s director of land bird conservation.

“In this late breakfast series, we invite local scholars from the community or from colleges and universities to come talk to us about their current research or projects they might be working on,” Weinstein said. “We try to keep it affordable, so its’ a $5 suggested donation. We will have complimentary coffee from the Hatchet Coffee Company here in Boone and we will have locally baked breakfast goods.”

Smalling, a graduate of ASU, will discuss the fascinating practice of local bird watching in North Carolina’s High Country.

Jan. 24: Mini Matinees: Wonders and Woodwinds, 2 p.m.

Made possible by performers from ASU’S Hayes School of Music, this children’s program will intertwine fairy tales, fables and classical music.

“These afternoon programs will introduce kids to the performing arts. I’m really excited about them, and we have a large variety,” said Weinstein. “I remember doing that sort of thing when I was little, and it sort of opened up this whole magical world to me.”

This month’s program will be available at just $8 for the whole family for museum members and $10 per family for nonmembers.

“The setting will be so intimate that kids are sort of learning the etiquette of sitting and watching a performance, but there will also be a Q-and-A so they can learn about what goes into some of these performances — I think that’s also really valuable,” Weinstein said. “It’s art forms they’re not exposed to every day in the modern world.”

Mini Matinees are sure to be one of your children’s favorite BRAHM events.

Snowshoeing at Grandfather Mountain State Park

Have you ever wanted to try snowshoeing, or you like snowshoeing but do not have a pair? Well, this is your chance.  Join Ranger Sicard for a snowshoe hike that will begin at the Boone Fork Parking Lot (milepost 299.9 on the Blue Ridge Parkway). There will be a limited number of snowshoes available and will be given out on a first come first use basis, so please plan to arrive on time.  The hike will begin at 2pm and will last approximately 2-2.5 hours. Please dress accordingly for the weather and bring any snacks, water, and personal items you will need to be out in the weather for the duration of the hike. To make the hike more comfortable, we suggest you wear the sturdiest winter weather shoes you have (boots with firm soles and insulation to keep feet dry and warm). This hike is not appropriate for pets.  If there is not enough snow to snowshoe, a program on Winter Weather Hiking will be substituted and will be at the same location(s) as mentioned above.
