We are thrilled to welcome Morgan Creek to the 12th season of Bynum Front Porch Friday Night Music!
Morgan Creek is a bluegrass/ modern folk band based in Chapel Hill, NC. From traditional standards to bluegrass versions of Beatles tunes, our songs will leave you smiling and remembering that favorite trip to the mountains. The band features the vocals of Kirk Lawrence (also Mandolin) and Clinton Brooks (also Violin). Both of these men bring years of performance experience to the stage. John McNeal also provides vocals and the "all important" acoustic guitar to the Morgan Creek sound. The Bass is provided by Nat Smith. His stylings combine jazz, rock, and country swing with impeccable timing. The sound is rounded out by the Banjo stylings of "Uncle" Albert Segars. Featuring both melodic and Scruggs influences the Banjo sound is purely "Carolina". Together, Morgan Creek perseveres the sound of traditional music while pioneering new frontiers of modern bluegrass.
It's the 12th season of Friday Night Music at the Bynum General Store! The music starts at 7pm. Come a little earlier if you'd like a walk to the Haw River. There is Allen and Sons BBQ just up the road and a dessert food truck on site!
There is an outdoor stage or we can move inside to "the Bynum Disco" if it should rain! A pith helmet is passed to pay the band. $10/adult is suggested. No pets or alcohol please.
Fridays in Bynum: Music. A summer night - listening to the fiddles and the mandolins melding with the cacophony from crickets, owls, tree frogs and toads. Not being able to tell if the white lights are fireflies or Christmas lights. 3/4 time. Not worrying. Not rushing. Just being. As twilight descends.
We hope you can come rock with us Friday night!
