Saturday February 11

7:30-Closing Live Music: Circus Mutt. Originally formed in 2010, in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Asheville, NC, Circus Mutt draws from a spectrum of musical influences including rock-n-roll, jazz and bluegrass. The band cut their teeth on the road, touring literally non-stop from 2011-2016. Breweries, festivals, bars and thousands of miles of highway have been the proving ground for this group of blue-collar musicians. Behind the song-writing of Dan Falkenstein, Circus Mutt has woven a unique blend of American sounds on their first studio album “Old Dogs & New Tricks.” Live Mutt performances vary from solo/duo shows, to full-blown, 6-peice band extravaganzas. They are known for their gentlemanly manners and the good natured tail-waggin’ that comes naturally to every friendly mutt you know. Wherever they are, it is sure to be a Circus and you are surely welcome….


Sunday February 12

Lost Province Sunday: Residents of “The Lost Province” (Watauga, Ashe, Avery and Alleghany) receive 10% off food with verification of residency.

Popular Author Judith Richards to Come to Boone, Feb. 16

Author Judith Richards will be in Boone to talk about her latest book, Thelonious Rising, at The Local on Thursday, February 16 at 6:30 p.m. Thelonious Rising, recently optioned for a movie by actor Scott Wilson, (The Great Gatsby, In the Heat of the Night, In Cold Blood, The Walking Dead), is the story of a little boy living in New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina hit and the levees broke.

Richards is the first of many authors, musicians, and visual artists scheduled to come to Boone in a combined effort by Foggy Pine Books, The Local Restaurant, and Working Title Farm, an advocacy for artists of Shari Smith, a Southern writer recently moved to Boone. Smith has written for WNC Magazine, Wildlife in North Carolina Magazine, and is the author of I am a Town, a book about her adopted hometown of Claremont, North Carolina.

All books by both Judith Richards and C. Terry Cline Jr. are available at Foggy Pine Books, 444 West King Street and will be for sale at The Local on February 16th at Richards’ appearance.

The Local will have New Orleans dishes on the menu and drink specials in celebration of Richard’s appearance. Colton Lastname, owner of The Local, is excited to have his restaurant be the site for bringing even more culture to downtown Boone. “We want The Local to be the place where you never know what great artist or musician might be at the table next to you, might get up to play a song or tell a story. We’re thrilled to be part of this.”

The public is invited to The Local for Judith Richards’ appearance at no cover charge. Smith promises, “It’s not your typical book reading. We don’t do that. We celebrate words and music and food and drink. And, this is a book about New Orleans and it’s Mardi Gras!”
