Article Image Alt Text

If you enjoy folk and bluegrass music in a beautiful North Carolina setting, then come hear The Paper Crowns perform for the Friday night concert series on the Historic Hayesville Square sponsored by Tri-County Office Supply and presented by Clay County Community Revitalization Association. There will be food, beer and wine for purchase from Hayesville Brewing Company starting at 6 p.m. along with the American Legion Auxiliary selling hot dogs, popcorn and other refreshments. You are not allowed to bring alcohol on to the square as required by North Carolina state law. Music runs from 7-9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 9. There is no charge for entrance to the concert, however we do pass the red bucket for donations to help pay for the concert series.

The Paper Crowns are the multi-instrument, genre crossing power duo of Spiro and Nicole Nicolopoulos. This group is earning their reputation as the genuine article while performing on the cutting edge of modern roots music. Their musical chemistry is a gumbo of Appalachian folk and bluegrass, dixieland melodies, delta blues, acid rock, murder ballads and outlaw country that they cook up into a distinctive sound all their own. As a duo they have a full band sound with drums, bass, acoustic and electric guitars and banjo as well as live looping on the spot compositions. Their mix of modern and traditional performance creates a captivating intensity yet always honors their intimacy and emotional rawness as a duo. “The Paper Crowns have this aura of honesty in their music that’s genuine, easy to grasp, yet also not a complete giveaway,” according to IE Weekly News.

In addition to the red buckets, concerts are sponsored by private individuals, area businesses and organizations. As you visit these local businesses thank them for their support in making this event possible. 

The Historic Hayesville, Inc. shuttle service will be available beginning at 6:15 p.m. to concert goers at designated parking areas close to the square during the concerts and will make return trips after the concert has concluded. Look for the red shuttle signs, then catch a free ride to the square compliments of HHI.

If the weather should turn bad, the concert will move indoors to the Historic Clay County Courthouse at The Beal Center. Should this happen, we ask that you leave your lawn chairs in the car and come up to the courtroom and enjoy the show. Pets are not permitted inside.
