This weekend is lining up to be a pretty amazing weekend on the Outer Banks. There is great stuff happening Saturday and Sunday.
Saturday evening Mojo Collins and his band Triple Vision headline a show at the Roanoke Island Festival Park indoor theater in Manteo. Also on the bill is the Outer Banks’ Ruth Wyand and her Band of One and from Raleigh John Sand.
The headliner alone is enough to come out and check out the show.
Mojo’s musical roots are very much in the blues sounds of North Carolina, but with a career spanning more than 50 years, he manages to integrate so many different pieces of his past into his performance that watching him is a wonder.
Watching him on stage is to witness a performer at the top of his game. His guitar playing is amazing, the band is great, and it’s always a good time with him on stage.
Sharing the stage will be Ruth Wyand and Her Band of One.
There are very few guitarists anywhere as good as Ruth. Incredibly clean in what she plays, with a powerful bluesy voice. Don’t miss her.
It would be hard to think of a better venue than the RIFP indoor theater. It seats around 200-240, so it’s fairly intimate and the acoustics are great.
Kelly’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade-A Weekend highlight
There’s more to the weekend, though.
There’s the 31st Annual Mike Kelly’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade this Sunday at 1:00 p.m in Nags Head.
Kelly’s annual celebration of all that is green and Irish has to be seen to be understood.
It’s more than a little bit whacky. There is something for everyone, including kids because so many of the organizations in the parade come equipped with candy.
There are marching bands, and pets galore. There are floats and silly slogans and people dressed up in costumes.
The weather is a bit iffy for Sunday, but the parade goes on no matter what, so dress accordingly.
Sunshine and an ocean breeze—that’s what the Outer Banks is all about. Book your vacation with Brindley Beach Vacations and enjoy all that’s best about this sandbar by the sea.
