Bynum Front Porch Friday Night Music

While I'm on vacation check out the Bynum Front Porch Friday Night Music Series! Storytelling begins September 9 in Bynum! September 21 at the Pittsboro Roadhouse!

Bynum Front Porch Friday Night Music - 11th Season! 

Every Friday night from May to August, people come to the former cotton mill town in Chatham County, NC. Folks visit and talk as the crowd gathers. Food trucks are there - Barney’s Hot Dogs and Little Dipper's Italian Ice… Allen and Son’s BBQ is just up the road. Sometimes goodies from a non-profit bake sale.

At 7pm the music starts. There is an outdoor stage (and an indoor stage in the store if it rains!). A different band each week: Tonk, the Bluegrass Experience, Lizzy Ross, the Gospel Jubilators, The Durham Ukulele Orchestra… A pith helmet is passed to pay the band. ($10 suggested.) Young and old dance.

There are toys and books... and screen doors for kids to learn to bang. No pets or alcohol. Fireflies. Sometimes thunder.

Summer nights - listening to the clear voices and sweet songs 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.

Come rock with us.
