Last night's "Ocrafolk Christmas" was a big success, with an almost full house at Deepwater Theater. The usual lineup of performers (Molasses Creek, Coyote, Roy Parsons, etc.) was joined by John Golden, Jamie Tunnell, Michael Hilton, & the Ocracoke School Music Club. The audience was almost entirely local residents so it felt like a family gathering. At the end of the show Gary Mtchell passed out Christmas songbooks and everyone joined together singing a number of traditional holiday tunes. It was a superb performance with a down-home "feel good" atmosphere.
Today the weather has turned chillier. It's only 58 degrees and the sky has clouded over, with a stiff breeze blowing. Who knows, it might even feel like Christmas before the year's over. We'll keep you posted.
