Dare County Arts Council announces 2018 First Friday music line-up

Dare County Arts Council is pleased to announce the schedule of musical performers for First Friday on Roanoke Island, a monthly event sponsored by the Town of Manteo.

First Friday is a fun-filled, family-oriented street festival held the first Friday of each month, April through November from 6 to 8 p.m. in Historic Downtown Manteo along the Waterfront. Each month on First Friday, Dare County Arts Council hosts new art exhibits, with musical guests performing at the council’s Gallery. Local shops and restaurants in Manteo have extended hours and also feature special shows, sales and performances.

Highlights of the 2018 First Friday calendar include the April 6 performance of Martin Terry to kick off the year, a Latin-themed First Friday on May 4 featuring Regional Mexican band Tropical Mazter, Dare County student musician night on June 1 and a performance by Southern English Band on Nov. 9 to launch OBX Veterans Week. Additional musical performers will be announced each month at other Manteo locations including Poor Richard’s, Charis Coffee Co. and Avenue Grille.
