Folk duo Robuck will be at Dowdy Park in Nags Head July 31.

When Nags Head opened Dowdy Park a couple of years ago, there was a lot of questions about just what the town was going to do with what was once an amusement park.

We have the answer, and the answer is a lot.

Every Thursday there is a farmers market featuring local farmers only. This Thursday it was great. Last Thursday when it was 98 in the shade…well, still plenty to choose from but crops don’t like extreme heat any more than we do.

The farmer’s market will continue into fall.

Every Wednesday evening from 6-8:00 p.m. there’s music. Free music.

The upcoming show on July 31 is really exciting. Roebuck, a husband and wife duo will take the stage.

It’s acoustic. It’s folk. But it’s folk with attitude. The music, though is done to perfection.

Phillip Roebuck has been a one-man show for years and his repertoire is nothing short of spectacular. His own compositions, traditional musical of it done in his own way of how he believes it should be played.

His wife, Phoenix, on standup bass and vocals, adds some texture and allows a bit more complex arrangements. And…she’s really got attitude as well.

Given all of that, Wednesday evening at Dowdy Park should be a heck of a show.

Beyond the regularly scheduled events, Dowdy Park is a wonderful place to visit, especially for parents with kids. The park has lots of areas for children to play as well areas covered picnic tables togged out of the direct sun—or rain if it rains.
