Between the Sound and the Sea

This month's Ocracoke Newsletter is an article about a recording of traditional folk music of the Outer Banks. Compiled by Karen Helms in 1977, the album, Between the Sound and the Sea, features five native Ocracokers. 

They are Elizabeth Howard, Edgar Howard, Lawton Howard, Maurice Ballance, and Jule Garrish.

    There is a restaurant in Wilmington, NC named "Paddy's Hollow" - any idea if it is somehow related to Ocracoke's Paddy's Hollow?

    1. I don't know what the connection might be. Perhaps one of our readers knows.
