Summer Entertainment

Quality entertainment is what Deepwater Theater is all about. Folks who come out for the shows, including "You Ain't Heard Nothing Yet" [Monday nights], the "North Carolina Marionette Theater" [Tuesday afternoons], the Ocracoke Opry" [Wednesday nights], "Molasses Creek in Concert" [Thursday nights], and "Bawdy Songs & Stories" [Friday nights], tell us again and again how impressed they are with the amount of talent...and the quality of talent.

Ocracoke Island is home to many superb artists, storytellers, and musicians. We have folk and roots bands, guitarists, fiddlers, banjo players, storytellers, a jazz ensemble, and more.

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is a modern day ghost tale, "Ode to Mrs. Godfrey," by guest columnist Tom McDonald. You can read it here:

    Well, as always, I either learn more by reading something about Ocracoke on this blog or I learn more by viewing an unexpected, it's both. Fiddler Dave's ability to balance his fiddle on his nose or forehead (admittedly, it's a little difficult to see his precise technique) is amazing and totally entertaining. Something one would expect to view on "You Tube". He reminds me of Snoopy doing the happy dance! (Now, that's a compliment!)

    Wish I could have heard all of you singing "I'll Fly Away"....a favorite of mine.

    Philip, please keep letting your faithful mainland bloggers know all the "good stuff" going on this summer. For a few moments of our hurried day, at least we can pretend to be on the island, too.

  2. To hear the folks of the Opry sing "I'll Fly Away," go to this website -- -- really good stuff. Classic.
