Blues, jazz, rock n’ roll, pop, and bluegrass are just a few of the music genres visitors and residents of downtown Manteo can enjoy during The Courtyard Sessions: Live At Lunch at Dare Arts starting on Wednesday, May 10.
The Courtyard Sessions: Live At Lunch is a weekly event that will be held on Wednesdays from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and is free and open to everyone.
“With delicious eateries and unique shops, midday is a bustling time in historic downtown Manteo,” said Dare Arts Executive Director Jessica Sands. “Who doesn’t love hearing some live music while they shop and enjoy lunch? Our Courtyard is a great spot to take a break from shopping to enjoy a sweet treat or a coffee outside, and so we figured why not add some live music in there too! We are so excited to host The Courtyard Sessions: Live At Lunch, which features a great mix of our local musicians.”

“Armed with nothing more than a guitar to keep the tunes going, a harmonica for in between the melodies, and an unmistakable voice, I am a one-man band travelin’ roadshow,” said Kitty Hawk musician Vinny Blues. “Come take it easy with me and enjoy some ramblin’ gypsy outlaw tunes in The Courtyard on Wednesday, May 24.”
The Courtyard Sessions: Live At Lunch are sponsored by The Town of Manteo and TowneBank.
This project was supported by the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.
