Each week they host a music show featuring a variety of folk, Americana, bluegrass and roots music. The show runs straight through 8-9:15 without an intermission.

Martin Garrish

Since he was a teenager, Ocracoke Heritage award winner Martin Garrish has been at the heart of the music scene here on the island, fronting bands such as "The Ocracoke Rockers", "The Graveyard Band Revived", and his acoustic ensemble Martin and Friends". His exceptional guitar playing and rich voice covers everything from acoustic folk and bluegrass to hard rock, classic country and blues.

Dallas Mason

Ocracoke's Dallas Mason, now age 11, is 'off the charts' (to quote Martin Garrish). Establishing himself as the drummer for the Ocracoke Rockers, Dallas picked up the guitar two years ago, and has been soaking up everything that Martin can throw his way. Catch this youngster locally while you still can!

Molasses Creek's Gary Mitchell & Fiddler Dave Tweedie

Since 1993, Gary Mitchell and Fiddler Dave Tweedie have been at the heart of Ocracoke's own Molasses Creek, giving high-energy performances and heartfelt songwriting has brought the love of their coastal home to the stage. The band's elegant harmonies and arrangements, stellar songwriting, blazing instrumentals, and quirky sense of humor have won loyal followers throughout the United States and around the world. Molasses Creek has recorded 17 albums and are award winners from Garrison Keillor's `A Prairie Home Companion.'
