Yesterday evening at 7:30 the Ocracoke United Methodist Church hosted a variety of musicians from Hatteras & Ocracoke Island for a performance of upbeat, spirited music. The event had been planned for several months. It was a fund raiser for renovation to the Methodist Church's recreation building.
As it turned out, the show was a welcome opportunity for islanders to turn their attention, for an hour and a half, away from Saturday's tragedy, toward more uplifting thoughts. It was truly a beautiful show featuring outstanding vocals and amazing picking & fiddling. The audience was dazzled by some of the best talent on the Outer Banks.
