From the Beaufort County Traditional Music Association

Union Alley Coffeehouse and the Beaufort County Traditional Music Association host Sarah Morgan tonight at 8 p.m. Not only is Morgan an exciting young folk singer and mountain dulcimer player from East Tennessee, she’s also the 2012 Mountain Dulcimer Champion, and is touring North Carolina performing her Appalachian music.

The music of Sarah Morgan embodies her respect and joy of folk music and her creative approach to arranging. Backing traditional Appalachian melodies and haunting old time tunes with fresh harmonies and a progressive drive, she lends a new feel to seemingly “old” tunes, while accompanying pure and heartfelt vocals with the unpretentious sound of the Appalachian dulcimer. Folk, Americana, and Old-Time roots are brought to the forefront at live shows, where only Sarah and her dulcimer can be found behind the microphone, creating a subtle yet powerful sound that brings the relevant music of the past to today’s audience.

General admission tickets are $10; BCTMA member’s tickets are $8. The Union Alley Coffeehouse is located inside the Inner Banks Artisans’ Center, 158 W. Main St., Washington.
