7:30pm-Closing Live Music: Lazybirds. Lazybirds is a classic American band with roots in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina. Formed in 1996, the quartet began by immersing into the old forgotten styles of blues, jazz, country, and ragtime that had been the soundtrack of the American underground several decades earlier. The band quickly developed a reputation in the High Country for playing music that touches people at their core in a way that hearkens back to a time when music was more closely intertwined with nature. With Mitchell Johnston on stand-up bass and vocals, James T. Browne on drums and vocals, Jay Brown on guitar, harmonica and vocals, and Alfred Michels on fiddle and guitar, Lazybirds have created a sound that is all their own, at once familiar and original.

Saturday March 5

7:30pm-Closing Live Music: Andy Ferrell. Currently emerging with his debut EP whose title, I Was Born, boldly asserts his presence as a compelling new voice on the traditional American roots music scene, Andy Ferrell grew up in the small Blue Ridge Mountain town of Boone, North Carolina, not far from the birthplace and home of his greatest musical influence, bluegrass/country/folk music legend Doc Watson.
