Life’s a dance this July…
So put on your dancing shoes!

Greetings from downtown Todd!

Borrowing a line from Steve Winwood to let you know you do not want to miss this weekend in Todd.

This Friday night grab your favorite partner, the kids, grandma and grandpa too and come on down for our monthly Community Contra Dance! The dancing starts at 7:30 so don’t be late! Connie Carringer will be calling the dances to the lively tunes of the ever versatile Laurel Creek String Band! No experience is necessary and it sure is a whole lotta fun! 12 and under free – $5.00 for those over – for the band and caller.

Then next Saturday, August 3rd, the TCPO Free Summer Music Series continues with The New River Boys. These local boys from Boone are all the rage with ASU students. Mixing old and new, folk and rock. The three members, Anderw Jacobs (guitar/vocals), Aaron Simpson (mandolin/vocals) and Everett Hardin (cello/vocals) will be bringing their high energy music back to the Boone area after moving to Asheville earlier this summer. Their music is said to be “reminescent of Mumford and Sons and the Avett Brothers, with a little Punch Brothers thrown in.” (goupstate.com). They will be playing from 6-8 in Cook Memorial Park.

Also the first weekend of August, (2nd and 3rd) Blue Bear Mountain campground in Todd will be having their Music Fest. It’s Friday and Saturday at the campground. Here is a link to the music lineup and more information. They’ll have camping and 2 stages.

Did you miss the Todd Mercantile feature on North Carolina Weekend on UNC.TV.? How about the link I sent to the Liberty Day Parade or Marathon? Next week, I will resend all the links for the year (so far) for those whose interested.

Hope to see you soon in Todd!
