Long, lazy summer evenings, and what better way to kick off your weekend fun than a Friday night free concert on the square in downtown Hayesville. Enjoy some of the best local bands (Bob Tiger and Gnarly Fingers comes to mind!), singers and musicians you’ll find anywhere here in our little corner of the mountains.
The tavern features live music– some of the best country and folk music found anywhere in the mountains. It’s our own neighborhood version of the bar from “Cheers!”. Grab a beer and pull up a chair and enjoy the music. You’ll see many folks at the tavern kicking up their heels with a little bit of dancing and maybe even clogging, or joining in and singing along with the musicians and songsters. Open Thursday to Sunday, 4pm until closing.
