7:30pm-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 will bring you all that and then some! 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.


Saturday January 7

7:30-Closing Live Music: Alexa Rose Band- Alexa Rose. Virginia-born singer-songwriter Alexa Rose spent her formative years writing songs on a hand-me-down guitar in a little mountain town, and scaled down the Blue Ridge to settle in Western North Carolina in 2013. She has been called a “rising voice of the region,” sharing the stage with artists like Joy Ike and Jessica Lea Mayfield, and winning Asheville’s acclaimed Brown Bag Songwriting Contest in 2016. Rose’s sophomore album “Low and Lonesome” is, at heart, a folk songwriter’s album; the simple arrangements lend themselves to the frankness of Rose’s masterful phrasing, allowing the natural beauty of her warbling soprano to transport the listener to new places through familiar territory. Rose’s nonchalant delivery ebbs and flows in optimal sync with her band. The album features Pretty Little Goat String band members Tim Fisher on fiddle and JT Linville on bass.

 Authors Larry C. Timbs, Jr. and Michael Manual to Speak at High Country Writers

Regional authors Larry C. Timbs, Jr. and Michael Manuel will be the featured presenters at the Thursday, January 12th meeting of the High Country Writers at the Watauga County Public Library in Boone. The Library is located at 140 Queen Street. They will share with the HCW their unique marketing approach and talk about their recent release, Justice for Toby. The program is free and open to the public.


Larry C. Timbs, Jr. is a Vietnam era veteran (USAF) who has a Ph.D. in mass communications from the University of Iowa. He worked professionally in community journalism – as a reporter, photographer, editor and general manager – for six years. Timbs taught journalism at Winthrop University for 27 years. His family roots are in the mountains of East Tennessee. He and Michael Manual co-wrote their first mystery/romance/history Fish Springs: Beneath the Surface in 2009. Michael Manual and his wife Joyce live on a mountain overlooking Watauga Lake near Hampton, Tennessee. They like to hike on the Appalachian Trail and kayak on the lake. His screen writing ultimately led to the co-writing of Fish Springs: Beneath the Surface, his and Larry Timbs’ first published novel. Manuel and Timbs released their new book, Justice for Toby: A Fish Springs Novel, in June of 2016. Set in the years following the Civil War, freedman Isaiah discovers a human skeleton in rural Tennessee wearing a token belonging to a missing friend. Landowner Daniel Smith and his family are white people with a conscience, so Isaiah is not alone in seeking justice for Toby.


High Country Writers has been “energizing writers since 1995!” Regular meetings are at the Watauga County Public Library on the second and fourth Thursdays of most months from ten until noon and speakers’ programs are co-sponsored with the Library. HCW members present writing skills workshops on the first Thursday of the month, and have recently partnered with the Watauga Arts Council in hosting these workshops. In the event of inclement weather which dictates the closure of the Library, the High Country Writers Program will be canceled.
