An evening of music with Ron and Julia Thompson

As part of a Summer Music Series, the Bryson City library will present acoustic country music by Ron and Julia Thompson at 7 p.m. Aug. 23.

Weather permitting, the program will be presented on the front porch of the library; otherwise, it will be moved to the library auditorium. The Friends of the Marianna Black Library will provide snacks and refreshments.

The Thompsons have been playing music together for 25 years, and Julia has been singing the country melodies of people like Loretta Lynn since she was a little girl.

The program is free and open to everyone. The library is located in downtown Bryson City at the corner of Academy and Rector.
