Chris Minick and Lorraine Conard, accompanied by bass player, Greg Kidd, will be featured in a musical program in the barn behind the Museum of North Carolina Handicrafts at historic Shelton House, 49 Shelton Street in Waynesville, from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14
The popular performers were featured in a musical showcase last year that filled the barn with sounds of country, folk, rock, Reggae, blues, and original tunes.
Conard and Minick met several years ago at the open mic night in Waynesville. Since that time each performer has pursued individual projects, and each has played with a number of different musicians in a variety of settings throughout Western North Carolina. The duo has joined for the Shelton House event as a melodic combo that will cause listeners to want the evening to last for hours beyond the allotted time.
Rustic and comfortable, the barn at Shelton House provides an intimate, unique venue for the presentation of the earthy music exemplified by Conard and Minick.
Parking is available in front of the barn and at Shelton House/Hart parking lot. The event which is free and open to the public is the final seasonal offering by Shelton House in its craft, lecture, and music series.
Upcoming regular events at Shelton House are the ghost story telling event - Ghosts and Goblets - that will feature five storytellers in the 1885 Charleston-style house on Saturday, Oct. 22, from 7- 8 and from 8 - 9 p.m. and Appalachian Christmas, featuring traditional mountain and folk holiday songs, at Haywood Arts Regional Theater main stage on Saturday, Dec. 3 from 7 - 8:30 p.m. Tickets for both events will be available in advance at Blue Ridge Books and Olde Brick House in Waynesville.
