Appalachian storyteller to play Haywood library

Written by 

Storyteller/singer-songwriter Dusk Weaver performs at 3 p.m. Sunday, June 16, at the Waynesville Public Library.

Weaver is an upbeat entertainer and multi-instrumentalist. Before he began a professional music career, he worked for decades in training Percheron draft horses, framing houses and servicing chimneys. The lyrics of his songs sometimes land squarely in the vernacular of everyday people. Through his lifelong love of song and performances, Weaver befriended songwriting legends Townes Van Zandt, Billy Joe Shaver, and Mickey Newbury, who served as a role model and mentor to Weaver. 

Put on by the Haywood County Arts Council, the Sunday Concert Series is sponsored by the Friends of the Library. The local arts council receives support from the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources.

Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
