Last night at 8 o'clock the Ocracoke Opry opened their 2007 season with music (Martin Garrish was there, of course, as were Molasses Creek, Rob & Sundae, Cynthia Mitchell, and Roy Parsons) and storytelling (Lou Ann told a tale about the female pirate Anne Bonney, and Donald Davis entertained the nearly full theater with an endearing story of his mother).

Everyone had a rousing good time as evidenced by their enthusiastic applause. The show was too soon over, but performers and audience alike walked into the theater yard afterwards to drink in the quiet night beauty that is Ocracoke village.

Join us for an Opry show any Wednesday night throughout the summer. You'll be glad you did.

  1. Rumor has it that Dr. Beach was at the show!!

  2. Yes he was. And I believe that he was quite impressed with island talent -- at least that's what he told me. I understand that other celebrity newscasters are milling about the village today. Check out the news coverage tomorrow for the latest information.
