...Marcy & Lou (of the musical duo Coyote), and Gary & Fiddler Dave (of Molasses Creek) will be performing at Howard's Pub, starting at 8:30 pm. Ocracoke Island has a long tradition of home-grown live music. Other local groups (playing rock, country, folk, jazz, and more) perform regularly around the island. We may not be able to list every musical performance, but if any of our local entertainers has a special event planned please leave a comment and we'll post it.
On your next stroll down Howard Street be sure to look over the graveyard fence and notice Edgar Howard's tombstone. I have mentioned Edgar several times before in this journal. He and his brother, Walter, played in New York City in the the '20s & '30s with stars such as Al Jolson, Milton Berle, and Gene Autry. His marker has a banjo carved into it, with the words, "You ain't heard nothing yet!"
